Donald Trump: China Is Going to Have to Make a Deal that I Like or I’ll just Raise the Tariffs even Higher

President Donald Trump has warned that if no trade deal with China is reached, more duties will be imposed.

"China is going to have to make a deal that I like ... If we don't make a deal with China, I'll just raise the tariffs even higher," he told AFP reporters at the White House.

"They're trying to stop me, but I'm fighting for you, and I'll never let that happen"

BBC reports that Trump had addressed the media in the Oval Cabinet at the press conference in the course of his meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
The US President has again dismissed the impeachment inquiry as a "witch-hunt" and a "joke".

If Ukraine's new leader wanted an Oval Office welcome from Donald Trump — and he did — he would have to open a public probe into the president's Democratic foe Joe Biden and his son.
