Trump speaks by phone with China's Xi on trade

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow told CNBC that while US President Donald Trump plans to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping later this month, he has not asked US officials to draw up a proposed trade plan, contradicting a report earlier in the day that had buoyed hopes of a resolution.

"I think we will make a deal with China", he told journalists at the White House.

The two countries already have imposed tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of each other's goods and Trump has threatened to slap tariffs on the remainder of China's $500 billion-plus exports to the United States if the disputes can not be resolved.

President Donald Trump's newfound zeal to resolve his trade war with China risks hitting some familiar obstacles, including himself.

"We're doing a normal, routine run-through of things that we've already put together and normal preparation", he said.

He also confirmed information about that at the summit of "Big twenty" in Argentina, he is going to meet with Chinese leader XI Jinping.

Earlier on Thursday, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang told a group of visiting USA politicians that China and the United States could overcome their differences and get relations back on track if they worked together in a spirit of mutual respect. China also said that the telephone conversation was "positive". -China trade talks can not resume until Beijing outlines specific actions it would take to meet US demands for sweeping changes to policies on technology transfers, industrial subsidies and market access.

Despite the positive message from Beijing, analysts were more pragmatic about what could be achieved by the leaders' meeting given the two sides' huge differences on strategic and ideological issues, as well as the growing hostility towards China in the United States.

Bloomberg reported on Friday that Trump wants to reach a trade agreement with China at the G20 meeting. "We're not on the cusp of a deal".

"The Trump administration should not miscalculate China's tolerance for what they perceive as bullying tactics", he said.

The Trump Administration also has taken action to hit the Chinese semiconductor industry, indicting 2 companies accused of stealing trade secrets and banning United States software and equipment exports to 1 of them.

"As the president said, we would like to talk to them about it, but they may not be ready".
