"Talks with China are going on very well!" Trump tweeted on January 8.
The US President's remark comes a day after China announced that the two countries were close to striking a deal over the ongoing 'trade imbalance' between the two nations.
At the moment, trade talks are ongoing between US and China in Beijing. Quoting US officials, South China Morning Post reported that discussions would continue for the third day on January 9 between the two sides.
"I think we will make a deal with China. We have a massive trade negotiation going on with China. President Xi is very much involved. So am I. We're dealing at the highest levels and we're doing very well," Trump had earlier said on Friday.
