US President Donald Trump said it’s not the right time for trade negotiations with China, denting expectations for a near term deal after a breakthrough agreement between the US and Mexico.
Speaking to reporters during his announcement Monday of the new Mexico accord, Trump said he is rejecting overtures from China to negotiate as he tries to achieve a less
“one-sided” trade policy. "They want to talk," Trump said. But “it’s just not the right time to talk right now, to be honest”.
