Trump: China Trade Deal Will Be Signed Jan. 15th

CNBC reports:

President Donald Trump plans to ink the “phase one” trade deal with China at the White House on Jan. 15.  The president said “high level representatives of China” will attend the signing. Trump added that he will travel to Beijing “at a later date” to start talks toward a second piece of the trade pact.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request to comment on which top Chinese officials will be present at the signing. Reports this week indicated Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, Beijing’s top trade negotiator, could sign the agreement.
