Now, amid one of the more tumultuous moments in his presidency, Donald Trump has indicated that a breakthrough with Beijing could soon be on the horizon.
President Trump said the U.S. may reach a trade deal with China “sooner than you think,” sending stock markets to their highest levels of the day.
“We have created the greatest economy in the history of our country, the greatest economy in the world,” Trump said, referring to his administration’s loosening of corporate regulations and GOP-led tax cuts.
Then came the clincher.
“Had my opponent won, China would right now be the No. 1 economy by far,” Trump said. “Right now, China is way behind us, and they’ll never catch us if we have smart leadership. We’ve picked up trillions dollars and they’ve lost trillions of dollars. And they want to make a deal very badly and it could happen sooner than you think.”
