Trump says he may not stick to March deadline on China tariffs


President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he would consider postponing the March 1 deadline for China tariffs if U.S. and China can reach a trade deal soon.

Trump softened his stance on the trade battle with China, saying he’s open to letting the deadline slide, but “would prefer not to.” He also said China “very much wants to make a deal,” and he has “a big team” in China trying to reach a resolution.

When asked if he will meet Chinese President Xi Jinping at the end of March, Trump said “not at this point.”
