WASHINGTON, June 30 — US President Donald Trump said yesterday that while his meeting with China’s President Xi Jinping was far better than expected, he was “in no hurry” to cut a trade deal.

Trump also said he would not increase existing tariffs to China.

“I am in no hurry, but things look very good,” Trump wrote in a post on Twitter, referring to ongoing talks between Washington and Beijing.

“The quality of the transaction is far more important to me than speed.” — Reuters
