WASHINGTON (Reuters) – White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett said on Monday that U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer had made progress in talks with China and a deal was possible to end a dispute that has put tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars worth of goods.
“I think that it looks like Ambassador Lighthizer has made a lot of progress and we might get there in China,” Hassett said in an interview with Fox Business Network.
