China is offering to lower tariffs on U.S. farm, chemical, auto and other products as part of a trade deal that is nearing completion, a new report says.
The Wall Street Journal in that report Sunday also said that as part of that trade pact, the United States is considering eliminating most if not all of the trade sanctions imposed on Chinese products last year.
A summit between the two leaders could happen sometime in March, according to both Bloomberg and the Journal.
"Speaking of China we're very well on our way to doing something special. But we'll see," Trump said Thursday.
But Trump, speaking in Hanoi, Vietnam, after ending negotiations with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un without reaching an agreement on that communist nation's nuclear program, added, "I am always prepared to walk."
"I'm never afraid to walk from a deal, and I would do that with China, too, if it didn't work out, " the president said.
The U.S. has threatened to place tariffs of 25 percent on $200 billion of Chinese imports if no deal is reached.
