U.S. reaches deal in principle on trade with China: sourceThe United States has reached a “phase-one” trade deal in principle with China, a source briefed on talks between the two nations said on Thursday, saying a statement from the White House was expected soon.

U.S. negotiators have offered to reduce tariffs on about $ 375 billion in Chinese goods by 50% across the board, two people familiar with the negotiations said, and suspend tariffs on $ 160 billion in goods scheduled to go into effect on Sunday.
