Trump says he’ll talk trade with Xi next week in Japan
President Donald Trump says he’ll hold trade talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping next week at a summit of nations in Japan.
In an escalating trade dispute with Beijing, Trump has already imposed 25% tariffs on $250 billion in Chinese imports. The goal is to pressure Beijing to stop stealing American technology, forcing U.S. businesses to hand over trade secrets and unfairly subsidizing Chinese tech companies.
