President Trump has lauded the Phase 1 US-China trade deal as “one of the greatest trade deals ever made.” He tweeted that the deal was “also good for China and our long-term relationship. US$250 billion will be coming back to our country, and we are now in a great position for a Phase Two start. There has never been anything like this in U.S. history.”
Vice Premier Liu He said China has little interest in immediately starting talks on a phase two deal with the US. He said, “we might get nothing if we rush to a second job before the first one is properly done. I don’t think it's a wise choice to impatiently launch new stages of talks."
