Trump threatens China with more tariffs

U.S. President Donald Trump threatened additional tariffs on Chinese imports if President Xi Jinping will not attend the upcoming G-20 meeting in Japan. The G20 summit will be held in Osaka on June 28 and 29, where the duo are expected to meet and discuss the raging trade war between the two countries. I think he will go and I think we’re scheduled to have a meeting. I think he’ll go,” Trump told CNBC in a phone interview. “I would be surprised if he didn’t go. I think he’s going. I haven’t heard that he’s not. We’re expected to meet and if we don’t that’s fine and if we do that’s fine.” Regarding the issue, Chinese foreign ministry said Beijing is open to more trade talks with Washington, but has not confirmed a possible meeting between the pair.
