The president also confirmed that a meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping to "work out the final points" of a trade deal was being planned for sometime in March, "probably at Mar-a-Lago", the Florida resort that Trump owns, he said.

USA and Chinese negotiators have made progress and were to extend this week's round of negotiations by two days through tpday, Trump told reporters at the White House as he met with his top negotiators and their counterpart, Chinese Vice Premier Liu He (劉鶴).

United States officials have long argued that China's yuan is undervalued, giving it a trade advantage and partly offsetting USA tariffs.

Trump will meet with Vice Premier Liu He, China's top trade negotiator.

We recently got trade figures from November, which showed that the president's China tariffs are costing north of $2 billion a month even at the 10 percent level.

It started when Trump was asked by a reporter what period of time "memorandums of understanding" being worked out on trade with China would last.

Presidents Trump and Xi agreed to a 90-day truce on tariff increases during which trade negotiators from each side would hammer out a deal.

In September, Trump imposed 10 percent tariffs on an additional $200 billion of Chinese imports and threatened to increase the duties to 25 percent on January 1.

US and Chinese negotiators agreed Friday to extend high-level trade talks through the weekend, and President Donald Trump said he hoped to meet next month at his Florida resort with President Xi Jinping to try to finalize an agreement.

"I think we're making a lot of progress", Trump said at the meeting, part of which was open to the media. These tariffs are heavily aimed at soybeans and other agricultural products in an effort to pressure Trump supporters in the USA farm belt.

USA and Chinese negotiators met for over seven hours on Saturday in Washington and were to meet again on Sunday morning as they race to seal an agreement.

They are both blunt-speaking, and share a common narrative about who the villains are in the de-industrialization of the U.S. Mr. Trump's lament in his 2017 inaugural address for the "rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation" likely struck a chord with Mr. Lighthizer, who grew up in Ashtabula, Ohio, a faded Rust Belt town on Lake Erie. In all, China has raised tariffs 5 percent to 25 percent on about $110 billion of US merchandise.

"Trump may claim victory as the US manufacturing sector grows while the Chinese one shrinks and the bilateral trade balance of the USA with China improves", EconPol Europe researchers Gabriel Felbermayr and Marina Steininger said. The Trump administration's grievances on trade have more to do with China's nonmarket behavior.

"Both sides clearly are working toward the objective of reaching a deal", said Ryan Hass, a former White House adviser on China in the Obama administration who's now a fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington.

Chinese officials have reportedly offered to buy an additional $30 billion worth of USA agricultural exports each year, more than doubling the current $24 billion figure, and to buy more American semiconductors. Trump has been adamant any deal must include an end to "unfair" trading practices and Chinese theft of US intellectual property.
