On Saturday President Trump expressed optimism regarding the possibility of a trade agreement with China.
Trump’s comments came at the beginning of talks with Chinese president Xi Jinping during the G20 summit in Japan.
Trade negotiations between the US and China broke down in May.
The meeting between the two leaders at the summit is their first face-to-face since the trade war escalations.
Trump underscored the significance of the talks, saying the trade deal is actually very easy to do and would be historic if it could be reached.
He says US is open to it.
President Xi told Trump cooperation and dialogue are better than friction for the the US and China.
