WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he views the Phase 1 trade deal inked between the United States and China differently in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
“I guess I view the trade deal a little bit differently than I did three months ago,” Trump said at a news conference in the White House Rose Garden.
“Getting along with China would be a good thing. I don’t know if that’s going to happen. I’ll let you know,” he added.
