Trump says he hasn't agreed to rolling back China tariffs [View all]

Source: Politico

President Donald Trump said today he hasn't agreed to lift or reduce any tariffs on Chinese goods, one day after a Chinese government spokesperson said the two sides were in agreement on that.

"Well, they would like to have a rollback. I haven't agreed to anything," Trump told reporters on the White House lawn. "China would like to get somewhat of a rollback. Not a complete rollback because they know I won't do it."

Trump also reiterated that discussions were continuing. "They want to make a deal. Frankly, they want to make a deal a lot more than I do," he said. "I'm very happy right now. We're taking in billions of dollars" in tariff payments.

A person who spoke with Trump on Thursday night told POLITICO the president remains confident that some kind of deal could be worked out but discussions haven't concluded. There also have been internal disagreements in the administration against going easy on China.
