USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - FRONT PAGE -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump says “big progress” is be­ing made in talks be­tween the U.S. and China to head off fur­ther es­ca­la­tion in a year­long trade war.

Trump said Satur­day that he had a “long and very good call” with Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping to dis­cuss the talks, which stemmed from their sit­down early this month in Ar­gentina.

The lead­ers agreed on Dec. 1 to post­pone more tar­iff hikes to al­low for ne­go­ti­a­tions.
