Trump: Trade deal with China is 'coming along very well'

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer told reporters that the administration's target is still to finish phase one by the time the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meetings take place in Chile on Nov.

16 and 17.

He added there are outstanding issues to resolve.

Earlier on Monday, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the first part of the pact does not need to be finalized next month and that timing was less important than making "the right deal."
