(Worthy News) - President Trump said he was "not ready" to make a deal with China on trade and that a planned September meeting between White House officials and Beijing could be called off.
A cancellation would increase the likelihood that the Trump administration follows through with its threat to enact new tariffs on $300 billion on Chinese goods, since the levies are set to begin in September if a trade deal isn't reached.
"We’re talking to China. We’re not ready to make a deal, but we’ll see what happens," Trump told reporters Friday as he left the White House for a fundraising trip to New York. "We'll see whether or not we keep our meeting in September. If we do, that's fine. If we don't, that's fine." [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
