Donald Trump says China trade deal might come after 2020 election

LONDON – President Donald Trump signaled Tuesday that the White House’s trade war with China could drag on for some time after he said it might be better to wait to sign an agreement with Beijing until after the 2020 presidential election. 

“In some ways, I like the idea of waiting until after the election for the China deal, but they want to make a deal now and we will see whether or not the deal is going to be right,” Trump told reporters in London, where he is taking part in two days of NATO meetings that coincide with the military alliance’s 70th anniversary.

The U.S. election will take place in November next year. 

“I have no deadline, no … In some ways I think it is better to wait until after the election, if you want to know the truth,” Trump added, when pressed about whether he had a deadline for the deal that, while it is being worked out, has seen the U.S. and China impose billions of dollars of tariffs on each other’s goods since 2018.
