Reuters: Trump to meet with China's Xi to try to seal trade deal, progress reported

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he will meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping soon to try to seal a comprehensive trade deal as Trump and his top trade negotiator both cited substantial progress in two days of high-level talks.

Trump, speaking at the White House during a meeting with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, said he was optimistic that the world’s two largest economies could reach “the biggest deal ever made.”

No specific plans for a meeting with Xi were announced, but Trump said there could be more than one meeting. U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin were invited to bring a U.S. negotiating team to Beijing around mid-February, with dates still pending.

An improved trade deal between China and the US would be historic, and as much as I like Trump for doing this, I think trillions have been left on the table -- just imagine, for once, the US would stand firmly behind their president on this subject.. he could have negotiated more out of it.. I am sure trillions will be left on the table.. but hey, that's the price for listening to CNN. Don. Cooper. Wolf. Just remind them 20 years from now, what was at stake. And what they chose to do.
