President Donald Trump said late on Monday that U.S.-China trade deal is fully intact.

The statement comes a day after White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said that the trade deal with China is "over," and he linked the breakdown in part to Washington's anger over Beijing's not sounding the alarm earlier about the coronavirus outbreak.

Counter  that statement, Trump said on Twitter: "The China Trade Deal is fully intact. Hopefully they (China) will continue to live up to the terms of the Agreement." 
 
"It's over," Navarro told Fox News in an interview when asked about the trade agreement.
