Team Trump shuts down talk of trade deal with China

  • US President Donald Trump

"Those discussions are moving along nicely", Trump wrote on Twitter Thursday.

Trump said he also talked with Xi about "many subjects", including a "good discussion" on North Korea, where Trump is trying to negotiate an end to Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program.

Beijing and Washington have been involved in a trade spat since April 2018, when the USA started imposing steep tariffs on goods from China.

The US is preparing to announce by early December tariffs on all remaining Chinese imports if talks between Trump and Xi fail to ease the trade war, three people familiar with the matter said. "Those discussions are moving along nicely with meetings being scheduled at the G20 in Argentina". He said China wanted to make a deal, adding, "They are not doing well".

Hong Kong and Shanghai led another rally across Asian markets on Friday after Donald Trump's tweet hailing positive talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping was seized on by dealers hoping for a breakthrough in their trade row.

"Positive comments from President Trump over US-China trade tension are cheering the market in the short term", said Tai Hui, chief market strategist for Asia Pacific at JP Morgan Asset Management. It also fuelled speculation that Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He's trip to the U.S., which had originally been scheduled for September but was cancelled due to the escalation of the trade dispute, might be back in the cards. The Chinese president also said he would like to meet Trump at the G20.

Lu Xiang, a specialist on U.S. affairs at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said that Beijing had been preparing for a "worse than the worst" confrontation with the United States, and added that any further escalation would be fatal to an already highly volatile USA stock market.
