Trump re­ports progress with China on trade

The Island Packet (Sunday) - - News -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump said Sat­ur­day that he’d spo­ken at length with Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping and that “big progress” is be­ing made toward a deal be­tween the world’s largest economies.

The agree­ment will be “very com­pre­hen­sive” and will cover “all sub­jects, ar­eas and points of dis­pute,” the pres­i­dent said in a tweet.

Trump’s com­ment comes as a U.S. del­e­ga­tion pre­pares to travel to Bei­jing early in the new year for talks with Chi­nese of­fi­cials, and is an­other sign that trade ten­sions may be cool­ing af­ter months of brinkman­ship.
