POTUS Trump on Meeting With China Next Week: ‘We Can No Longer Have Massive Trade Deficits’

Trump’s tweets about next week’s meeting with China regarding trade and job losses, expresses current tensions.

President Donald Trump tweeted on Thursday, March 30, 2017 about the upcoming meetings with Chinese President Xi Jinping next week. He says that the U.S. can no longer deal with the massive trade deficits and the consistent loss of jobs.

Lu Kang, the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman did not explicate on the details of the meeting or their agenda but did speak about the necessity of looking at the big picture in regards to mutual interests as far as trade relations go.

Reuters reports:

“The market dictates that interests between our two countries are structured so that you will always have me and I will always have you,” he told a regular briefing.

“Both sides should work together to make the cake of mutual interest bigger and not simply seek fairer distribution,” he said.

Aside from economic talks, the Trump-Jinping meeting, which will take place at Mar-a-Lago, will also focus on China’s role regarding their ally, North Korea. It will also focus on the growth of their nuclear program and China’s expanding of its presence in the South China Sea.
