President Donald Trump says he thinks he’s closer to striking a trade deal with China following a meeting with Chinese president Xi Jinping.
"I think so," Trump replied when Fox News host Tucker Carlson asked whether he thought he was closer to a deal.
Their interview is set to air Monday night at 8 p.m. on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
"We had a very good meeting. He wants to make a deal. I want to make a deal. Very big deal, probably, I guess you'd say the largest deal ever made of any kind, not only trade."
"We got along very well," Trump added. "We understand each other."
Trump and Xi met Saturday during the G-20 summit in Osaka, Japan, and the U.S. president after the sit-down told reporters that the countries agreed to restart trade talks in the wake of new concessions.
Trump’s concessions including no new tariffs and an easing of restrictions on tech company Huawei while China agreed to make unspecified new purchases of U.S. farm products and return to the negotiating table.
"China is sincere about continuing negotiations with the United States ... but negotiations should be equal and show mutual respect," China’s foreign ministry quoted Xi as saying.
