On Wednesday, U.S. President Donald Trump said he had no specific deadline for a trade deal with China that would allow Beijing to escape the imposition of 25 percent tariffs on $300 billion worth of exports to the United States. Trump said he had a feeling that a U.S.-China trade deal could be reached and again threatened to increase tariffs on Chinese goods if they do not make a deal. Trump and administration officials have been eyeing a possible meeting between the two leaders at the upcoming G20 summit in Japan, but Beijing has not confirmed any planned talks. Trade talks between the world's two largest economies fell apart in May.
