Trump leaves China tariff deadline open, calls relationship 'testy'

Trump leaves China tariff deadline open, calls relationship 'testy'

When and if China will be slapped with additional tariffs appears to now be up in the air, according to Donald Trump on Wednesday.

(SOUNDBITE)(English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SAYING: "No, I have no deadline, my deadline is what's up here.

We'll figure out the deadline....Nobody can quite figure it out." It comes as a partial message of hope that a trade truce with China can be reached.

(SOUNDBITE)(English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SAYING: "I think that will end up making a deal with China.

We have a very good relationship, although it's a little bit testy right now as you would expect." The U.S. has already slapped 25 percent tariffs on 250 billion dollars of Chinese goods.

Talks fell apart in May after Washington caused Beijing of watering down commitments on issues such as stopping intellectual property theft.

Since then the Trump administration has threatened more tariffs on 325 billion dollars of Chinese goods.

Unless Beijing opens its markets and stops requiring U.S. companies to share technology to do business there.

The tariffs, says Trump, are hitting China hard.

(SOUNDBITE)(English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SAYING: "A lot of companies are leaving China as you know.

It's in all the reports, and they go into Vietnam and various other places".

The U.S. president has said he still plans to meet with his Chinese counterpart at the G20 later this month.

Beijing though has not confirmed any planned talks.

And its Commerce Ministry said on Thursday it would not bow down to any "maximum pressure" from Washington.

Adding, quote: "Nothing is confirmed until everything is agreed".
