Trump calls report on China trade deal 'completely wrong'

President Donald Trump claimed on Friday that recent news reports on an interim trade agreement with China were false.


While Trump did not specify which story he was referring to, The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that US negotiators had offered to lower tariffs on roughly $360 billion worth of Chinese products.


China announced early Friday that trade officials would soon hold a briefing.


President Donald Trump sowed confusion around trade negotiations early Friday, claiming that recent news reports on an interim trade agreement with China were not accurate.


"The Wall Street Journal story on the China Deal is completely wrong, especially their statement on Tariffs," the president wrote on Twitter. "Fake News. They should find a better leaker!"


While Trump did not specify which story he was referring to, The Journal reported on Thursday that US negotiators had offered to lower tariffs on roughly $360 billion worth of Chinese products.


The Journal did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The White House declined to elaborate. The Office of the US Trade Representative did not respond to several emails.


China is expected to hold a press briefing on trade at 10 a.m. ET. Officials initially scheduled the briefing for a half hour earlier but delayed it at the last minute.

Trading in leveraged currency contracts comes with substantial risk. You must be aware of these risks before opening an account to trade. High leverage amplifies gains as well as losses, leading to potential loss of the entire account balance. Trading in leveraged currency contracts may not be suitable for every investor. Never speculate using money that you cannot afford to lose.
