Trump says US-China trade deal is “fully intact”
President Trump says the US-China trade deal is fully intact. His comment on Monday night came hours after White House Trade Advisor Peter Navarro said “it’s over” when asked about the trade deal by Fox News.
The comment caused volatility in the global markets, but Navarro released a statement saying his words were taken out of context. He said he wasn’t talking about the trade deal but was talking about the lack of trust in China.
Despite recent tensions between the US and China, Trump says he hopes China will continue to meet the terms of the phase one agreement.
