Lighthizer: Trump wants good China trade deal

United States President Donald Trump gave instructions to his trade negotiations team that he wants "to get a good deal," US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said on Wednesday.

Lighthizer also stated that "we will see about deal on China" and added that if no deal is reached with officials from Beijing, tariffs will remain in place.

Earlier in the day, Trump said a trade deal with China could happen "sooner than you think" after China announced it is prepared to buy more agricultural products from the US. Beijing and Washington are expected to continue their trade talks in two weeks.
