And just days ahead of Trump's planned meeting with Xi at the G20 summit, the USA president vowed to put tariffs on all remaining imports from China if the two sides failed to reach a deal, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Beijing and Washington are now locked in a trade war, after Trump began imposing tariffs on Chinese goods for violating intellectual property rights, also accusing the Asian nation of unfair trade practices amounting to a $375 billion USA trade deficit with China.
One expert said China would have to address U.S. complaints about China's forced transfer of intellectual property rights - a major issue at the core of a USA "301" trade investigation - for Washington to drop its tariffs. But for U.S. cars, China added a 25 per cent tariff over the summer, making the rate 40 per cent.
In case of failure of negotiations, Washington will raise taxes $200 billion of China's exports, equivalent to nearly half of all shipments China to US, from 10% to 25%.
Further, the read-out stated that Trump and Xi have agreed to "immediately begin negotiations on structural changes with respect to forced technology transfer, intellectual property protection, non-tariff barriers, cyber intrusions and cyber theft, services and agriculture".
Trump announced the deal in a two-sentence Twitter post late Sunday.
