U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to raise tariffs on China if the two sides are unable to come to an agreement on a trade deal.
"I have a good relationship with China," Trump said during a Cabinet meeting.
"We’ll see what happens. I'm very happy right now. If we don’t make a deal with China, I’ll just raise the tariffs even higher," the Hill cited the U.S. leader as saying.
"Look, China’s going to have to make a deal that I like. If they don’t that’s it. OK?" he said.
Trump announced last month that the two sides had come to an understanding on "phase one" of a deal, but it has yet to be finalized or signed by either party.
