Trump says no immediate plan to meet Chinese leader on trade

By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says he does not expect to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng) before a deadline to resolve a trade dispute.

Asked Thursday if he had a meeting set up with XI in the next month or so, Trump told reporters: "Not yet. Maybe." Pressed on whether he would meet him before the March 2 deadline, Trump said no and shook his head.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin (mih-NOO'-shin) and trade representative Robert Lighthizer are leading a team to Beijing next week to continue talks aimed at resolving a costly trade war.

Trump has said a comprehensive agreement is unlikely until he meets with his Chinese counterpart. Trump and Xi last met in December in Argentina.
