A meeting with President Donald Trump and President Xi Jinping to sign an agreement to end the trade war won’t occur this month, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said this week.
Despite claims of progress in trade talks by both sides, the anticipated meeting at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort will now take place at the end of April if it happens at all, according to an inside source, said Bloomberg.
China is pressing for a formal state visit, traditionally held in Washington, to sign a trade deal, the source said.
Xi’s staff have canceled plans for a potential trip to the US following a visit to Europe later this month. The sources asked not to be named as the details are private.
