China facing hardest time; wants trade deal: Trump

China is facing their hardest time in decades in maintaining the economy and badly wants to have a trade deal with the US, President Donald Trump has said, ahead of the next round of trade negotiations between the two giant economies. China is having a hard time at this moment.  And I think they'd like to make a deal very badly. And so we have a lot of things that are really exciting, Trump told reporters at the White House.

The US and China will hold the next round of trade negotiations today, as the two major trading powers are trying to end their bruising trade war. The American side would be led by US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin. The Chinese delegation will be led by Vice Premier Liu He. Trump said there were some tremendous deals under negotiation.

'The two countries have been unsuccessfully talking for about a year now. We have some tremendous deals under negotiation. So despite all of that, we have a great economy and a great market, he said
