Trump told global media at the White House that “China is having a hard time at this moment. And I think they'd like to make a deal very badly. And so we have a lot of things that are really exciting." Both the nations are scheduled to hold another round of bilateral talks on trade on October 10.
Economic experts look forward to the negotiations as both countries try to ease the trade tensions and also end their trade war, which has long affected the world economy.
