“Not to sound naive or anything but I believe President Xi meant every word of what he said at our long and hopefully historic meeting. ALL subjects discussed!” the President of the United States tweeted Wednesday morning, one day after his previous boasts about those talks helped sink U.S. stock markets.
Donald Trump’s Saturday claims as to what China President Xi Jinping agreed to Saturday at the G-20 summit in Argentina created confusion as the two countries kicked off a 90-day period of deal pounding out.
In Wednesday tweets, Trump swatted at reports China had not promised any immediate action, insisting “China officially echoed President Donald Trump’s optimism over bilateral trade talks” adding, “Chinese officials have begun preparing to restart imports of U.S. Soybeans& Liquified Natural Gas.”
Trump pronounced this to be “the first sign confirming the claims of President Donald Trump and the White House that…..China has agreed to start ‘immediately’ buying U.S. products.”
