Trump on trade war: China wants to negotiate; we will start talking very seriously

President Donald Trump said on Monday that China is ready to come back to the negotiating table and the two countries will start talking very seriously. Speaking at the G-7 summit in Biarritz in France, Trump praised Chinese President Xi Jinping and welcomed his desire for a deal. “China called last night our top trade people and said ‘let’s get back to the table’ so we will be getting back to the table and I think they want to do something. They have been hurt very badly but they understand this is the right thing to do and I have great respect for it. This is a very positive development for the world,” Trump said. On Sunday, Trump said the U.S. and China were getting along very well and were talking. “Actually we are getting along very well with China right now, we are talking. I think they want to make a deal much more than I do. I’m getting a lot of money in tariffs its coming in by the billions. We’ve never gotten 10 cents from China, so we will see what happens,” Trump said on Saturday.
