US President Donald Trump said on the sidelines of G7 in France, “China called last night our top trade people and said, ‘let’s get back to the table’, so we’ll be getting back to the table, and I think they want to do something”. He added, “they’ve been hurt very badly but they understand this is the right thing to do.”
Trump also noted “they have supply chains that are unbelievably intricate and people are all leaving and they are going to other countries, including the United States by the way, we are going to get a lot of them too”
However, China’s Foreign Ministry said they’re not aware of the weekend phone calls Trump mentioned. But the spokesman said China hopes the United States can come back to the path of rationality, adding that “decoupling” won’t resolve current problems.
