White House: Words of Chinese president are encouraging, but concrete steps must be taken

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – US President Donald Trump is optimistic about Chinese President Hu Jintao’s promise to increase the opening of the world’s second-largest economy, but he will continue to urge concrete changes in Beijing’s trade policy, the White House said on Tuesday.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said: “Certainly we are optimistic about the president’s friendly words, but at the same time we want to see concrete actions from China. We will continue to move forward in the process and in the negotiations until such action takes place.”
