Trump says 'breakthrough' achieved in trade talks

US President Donald Trump said on Saturday that the recently sealed trade deal with China will be signed "shortly" as he boasted a "breakthrough" in trade talks with the Asian nation.

"We just achieved a breakthrough on the trade deal and we will be signing it very shortly," Trump told the crowd at Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, Florida. It remains unclear, however, whether the president was referring to any new development or to the phase one deal itself.

On Friday, Trump announced that he and Chinese President Xi Jinping had a "good talk" about the deal over the phone, claiming that Beijing has already started "large scale purchases" of US farm products.
