“President Trump said China wants to "get back to the table" and called its president a "great leader" as the Group of Seven (G-7) meeting neared its ending, his latest shift in tone on trade negotiations with Beijing.
The trade battle with China has contributed to an unsettling economic situation that has led to worries about a recession next year along with questions about how that might affect the 2020 presidential race.
It's also the latest in a series of mixed signals from Trump, who just Sunday suggested he regretted imposing higher tariffs on China, only for the White House to insist those remarks had been misinterpreted by the media and that his only regret was not imposing higher tariffs.
Trump also suggested on Friday that Chinese President Xi Jinping was an “enemy” of the United States after Beijing announced a new round of reciprocal tariffs on American goods. On Monday, he described him as a “great leader.”
The president's shift came as he spoke to reporters during a meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on the sidelines of the G-7 summit in Biarritz, France.”
