Trump predicts 'very difficult' China summit

Trump predicts 'very difficult' China summitUS President Donald Trump has predicted an upcoming meeting with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping would be “very difficult”, staking out an adversarial position ahead of the high-profile first summit between the leaders. Trump’s comments Thursday appeared to herald a return to a tougher line from the president, who took a hawkish tone on the Asian giant in the weeks after his election before softening his rhetoric. “The meeting next week with China will be a very difficult one,” Trump tweeted, in apparent reference to a Xi visit planned for next week in Mar-a-Lago.
