Trade Talks With China to Continue in DC

Trade talks with China will continue next week when China’s top economic advisor visits D.C., according to the White House Press Secretary.

Sarah Sanders says the administration is working on something that will benefit everybody.  A Chinese spokesperson says this is a positive sign that the US is willing to come to an agreement.

The meeting comes after U.S. trade officials visited Beijing last week and were unable to come to an agreement. The US is requesting that the trade deficit with China be reduced by $200 billion and China has asked Trump to back off on the $150 billion tariffs on Chinese imports.
