Trump: Trade talks with China will continue and the abolition of customs duties depends on the outcome of the negotiations
President Donald Trump said trade talks between the United States and China would continue in the future and that the abolition or retention of US tariffs depended on the outcome of the negotiations.
Trump's comments, which came in a glee, aim to send a message to the financial markets that despite a major setback last week, talks in Washington on Thursday
and Friday did not lead to a complete collapse.
"Over the past two days, the United States and China have held frank and constructive talks on the status of trade relations between the two countries," Trump said, praising his relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping, saying the talks would continue.
"In the meantime, the United States has imposed customs duties on China may be canceled and may not be canceled depending on what happens in future negotiations!"
