WH on China's Trade Remarks: Real Action Needed

(C-SPAN)

By    |   Tuesday, 10 April 2018 06:12 PM

President Donald Trump was "encouraged" by Chinese President Xi Jinping's promise to open up the country's economy further and lower import tariffs on U.S. products, but "we want to see actions from China," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday.

"We're encouraged by the words, but we want to see concrete steps and action," she told reporters at the daily briefing. "In the meantime, we're going to continue to move forward."

Xi said Beijing would sharply widen market access for foreign investors, a chief complaint of the country's trading partners and a point of contention for President Trump, who has threatened $150 billion in tariffs on Chinese goods.

Trump has said the U.S. has a $500 billion trade surplus with China.

The president tweeted Tuesday that he was "very thankful" for President Xi's "kind words on tariffs and automobile barriers.

"We will make great progress together," he said in his post:

"We've been encouraged by President Xi and his kind words, but at the same time we want to see actions from China," Sanders told reporters.
