 “He just wrote me a beautiful letter. I’ve just received it and I’ll probably speak to him by phone,” Mr Trump said “He just wrote me a beautiful letter. I’ve just received it and I’ll probably speak to him by phone,” Mr Trump said

US President Donald Trump said on Thursday that he had received a “beautiful letter” from Chinese President Xi Jinping, as negotiations on a trade deal between the two countries continue in Washington.

“He just wrote me a beautiful letter. I’ve just received it and I’ll probably speak to him by phone,” Mr Trump said. Later, he quoted Mr Xi as saying in the letter: “Let’s work together, let’s see if we can get something done.”

Mr Trump said he believed it was possible to reach a deal this week, as negotiators prepare to meet again on Thursday in Washington to end a trade dispute between the world’s two largest economies. 

The US Trade Representative’s office announced that tariffs on US$200 billion worth of Chinese goods would increase to 25% from 10% at 12.01am Friday, right in the middle of two days of meetings with a Chinese delegation led by Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He.

President Trump has accused China of reneging on commitments it had made so far in the talks. “We’re getting very close to a deal then they started to renegotiate the deal. We can’t have that. We can’t have that,” he said.

    And little hearts all over it. Or is that reserved for Kim Jong-un?
