OSAKA (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said he expected a productive meeting with China’s President Xi Jinping on Saturday, highly anticipated talks on the sidelines of the G20 Summit amid the U.S.-Chinese trade tensions.
“I think it will be productive,” Trump told reporters on Friday. “Who knows, but I think it will be productive. At a minimum it will be productive. We’ll see what happens and what comes out of it.”
But asked if he had promised Xi a six month reprieve from tariffs, Trump said: “No.”
