"We can't have a trade war," Gorman said in an interview Thursday with CNBC's Wilfred Frost. "It will have a devastating effect to the global economy. That doesn't mean there can't be changes to the way the trade agreements are being written."
Gorman, who said he has visited Chinese and U.S. officials recently, cautioned that there wasn't likely to be a tidy solution to the dispute after the upcoming G-20 meeting, in which President Trump and President Xi are scheduled to convene.

The bank's shares have climbed 9.4% this year.
