WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. trade negotiations with China were progressing and a final agreement “will probably happen,” U.S. President Donald Trump said in a television interview aired on Friday.
Asked about his previous remarks about U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods staying in place for a period of time, Trump also told Fox Business Network there was no snag in trade negotiations.
