US President Donald Trump said on Monday that now was “not the right time to talk” to China about the two nations’ trade war, just days after negotiations between them failed to lead to any substantive progress.
“They want to talk,” Trump said, speaking of Chinese officials. “It’s just not the right time to talk right now, to be honest with China.”
“It’s too one-sided for too many years and too many decades, and so it’s not the right time to talk,” he said. “But eventually I’m sure that we’ll be able to work out a deal with China.”
