Trump Warns China Against Delay in Reaching Trade Pact

U.S. President Donald Trump warned China on Tuesday against delays in reaching a new trade agreement in hopes he is defeated for re-election in 2020, saying that if he wins he will be "MUCH TOUGHER" in setting the terms of a deal. Trump, who is engaged in a tit-for-tat tariff war with Beijing, said the U.S. is "doing very well in our negotiations with China," although dates for the next round of talks planned for later this month in Washington have not been set. "While I am sure they would love to be dealing with a new administration so they could continue their practice of 'ripoff USA'" with hundreds of billions of dollars in trade surpluses with the U.S., Trump said that "16 months PLUS is a long time to be hemorrhaging jobs and companies on a long-shot" until a new president could replace him in January 2021.
