WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that the United States was doing well in trade talks with China, but that Washington was not willing to make a deal along the lines of what Beijing was seeking.

“We’ve done very well in negotiations with China but we’re not prepared to make the deal that they’d like to make,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “We’ll continue to talk to China. I have great respect for (Chinese) President Xi (Jinping),” he added, “But right now we just can’t make that deal.”
