U.S.-CHINA HOPING TO BRIDGE TRADE DIVIDE: Officials from the U.S. and China are set to meet for two days, starting Monday, in Beijing, marking the first time the countries have held talks since President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed early last month to postpone further levies for 90 days in an effort to negotiate a deal ... The U.S. trade delegation led by Deputy Trade Representative Jeffrey Gerrish will visit China on Monday and Tuesday, according to China’s Ministry of Commerce, and the two sides are working to resolve disputes on trade and other economic issues.
Trump said Sunday that China's weakening economy is an incentive for officials to want to reach a trade deal. “The tariffs have absolutely hurt China very badly,” Trump told reporters outside the White House. “I think China wants to get it resolved."
