Trump: Deal with China could happen soon

United States President Donald Trump claimed on Friday that the "trade war" with China has caused its economic growth to slow down, while the US is "doing very well."

"China just announced that their economy is growing much slower than anticipated because of our Trade War with them. They have just suspended U.S. Tariff Hikes. U.S. is doing very well," the tweet from Trump said. Earlier, China's National Bureau of Statistics said that both the industrial and retail sales growth in November grew at a slower pace than before.

He also expressed confidence that a comprehensive deal with China could be reached soon. "China wants to make a big and very comprehensive deal. It could happen, and rather soon!" US president tweeted.
