Trump currency remarks warning to Russia, China - Mnuchin

United States President Donald Trump's comments on Russia and China devaluing their currencies as the US economy gets stronger serve as a warning to the two countries, US Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin said during an interview on CNBC on Tuesday.

The secretary stated Trump would consider rejoining Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) only on better conditions, adding that the US will make progress on the partnership.

Mnuchin stated that the president will discuss trade with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe later today. White House said earlier that the two leaders will "reaffirm" the alliance "as a cornerstone of peace, stability, and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region."
