Trump: No deadline on reaching China trade deal

United States President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he has "no deadline" for reaching a trade deal with China and added it could be "better" to wait until after the 2020 US presidential election to strike the agreement.

Speaking ahead of a meeting with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg in London, Trump insisted the trade agreement will only depend on whether he wants to make it as he once again insisted Beijing wants the deal as soon as possible.

On Monday, the US president stressed that the fact he signed the bill backing Hong Kong protesters doesn't make chances of a trade deal with China "better" but insisted it is still possible an agreement will be struck.
