Trump: China trade deal could happen 'sooner than you think'

United States President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that a trade deal with China was being worked on and that it could occur ahead of schedule.

Speaking to reporters, Trump said that trade talks between the world's two largest economies were going "very well." When asked about the timeframe for a potential deal, he replied that it could happen "sooner than you think."

Trump's comments come after Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Tuesday that trade negotiations between Washington and Beijing could resume in two weeks. Chinese media also subsequently reported that China would buy more agricultural products from the US as a gesture of goodwill in the latest rapprochement in relations between the pair.
