What's Going on With the U.S. and China?

President Trump on Friday hailed the partial agreement his trade team reached with Chinese officials in Washington as "by far, the greatest and biggest deal ever made for our Great Patriot Farmers in the history of our Country" and said a formal signing ceremony will likely happen in the next four to five weeks.

Trump highlighted what he said was a pledge by China to buy as much as $50 billion in U.S. agricultural products, starting "immediately," while noting that progress was made on issues such as alleged currency manipulation and intellectual property theft.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, however, described the accord reached Friday as more of a "fundamental understanding on the key issues," telling reporters that "we will not sign an agreement unless we get and can tell the president that this is on paper." China's state-backed news outlet Xinhua would only say the two sides "agreed to make the efforts towards a final agreement."
