Xi, Trump discuss North Korea, Syria

"And you have a tremendous power because of trade", Trump said.

"I think he wants to help us with North Korea", Trump said of Xi, crediting China in the White House news conference with taking a "big step" by turning back boats of coal that North Korea sells to its northern neighbor.

"The fact remains that the most effective way to reduce China's trade surplus with the world is to somehow raise the value of their currency", said Robert Scott, senior economist for institute and the report's author.

Since Trump took office in January, he has been confronted by European allies who have fear his administration will go easy on Russian Federation.

Recent research has estimated the Chinese yuan must rise in value by at least 30 percent, among other things, to bring global trade back in balance, Mr. Scott said.

The president wouldn't touch on specific strategy about North Korea, however Mr. Trump did mention the decision on Sunday by the US military to send the USS Carl Vinson and its carrier battle group close to the Korean Peninsula.

"We're going to have a phenomenal tax reform, but I have to do health care first".

Ivanka posted a video of the performance and it is a huge sensation in China, making successful diplomacy in this case a Trump family affair.

China, on the other hand, was a currency manipulator, a thief of USA jobs that should no longer be allowed to "rape our country".

Not as warm, but still mild this afternoon with sunshine
TUESDAY: Partly to mostly cloudy skies and a few rain showers will be possible, with a high temperature of 73 degrees. Rain chances will taper off tonight and clouds will near out overnight with lows falling into the mid 50s.

Trump insists that China must exert more leverage on Pyongyang to abandon its nuclear ambitions or suffer the consequences.

The USW statement went on to say workers have fallen victim to political bartering once again: "Workers are still not interested in having their jobs used to incent China to help deal with the nuclear threat of North Korea".

He adds that Beijing, meanwhile, has become "more proactive and bold" on the North Korea issue, for example, banning North Korean coal imports to China for the rest of the year.

Trump has given heft to the USA demand with shows of force. These comments come just days after the United States launched a powerful missile attack on a Syrian airbase from where an alleged chemical attack was launched.

He also said China and the U.S. should promote economic cooperation, expand exchanges in military, law enforcement, cyber and people-to-people areas, enhance communication and coordination in major global and regional issues, through the newly established four-pronged dialogue mechanism.

"It will be interesting to see what measures China takes to ramp up pressure on North Korea", she said.

The "realities" that Trump faces include North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's accelerating pursuit of nuclear and missile technology.

In August, he promised to direct his "treasury secretary to label China a currency manipulator".

Trump also suggested to the Journal that he could still reappoint Janet Yellen to another term as Federal Reserve Chair - something he said before that he wouldn't do.
