Reuters: Trump sees slowing Chinese growth pressuring Beijing on trade15 July 2019 | 15:15 | FOCUS News Agency
Growth data released earlier on Monday showed the world’s second-largest economy had slowed to 6.2% in the second quarter, its weakest pace in at least 27 years amid ongoing trade pressure from the United States.
“This is why China wants to make a deal with the U.S., and wishes it had not broken the original deal in the first place,” Trump tweeted.
Trump and his administration are seeking to push China to make a trade pact after talks broke down in May. Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed to restart negotiations at their meeting at the G20 last month.
U.S. and Chinese negotiators spoke by phone last week, and in-person talks are expected soon in Beijing, U.S. officials have said.
