Trump: China Trade Talks Were Productive
USAgNet - 02/19/2019

President Donald Trump said last week's China trade talks were "very productive" as his team briefed him upon their return and readied for another round of negotiations.

According to Bloomberg News, Saturday's meeting came as U.S. and China sent signals they may reach a deal or extend talks to end their trade war, easing fears the Trump administration will ratchet up tariffs when a key deadline arrives in two weeks. Investors on Friday cheered signs that the trade war between the world's two largest economies isn't escalating, with U.S. equities climbing.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders named 10 officials who were supposed to have participated in Saturday's meeting, either in person in Florida, where the president is spending the weekend, or by phone.

The attendees included U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, along with Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro, White House economic director Larry Kudlow, acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and others.
