POTUS said he will meet with Russian President Putin and Chinese President Xi at a G20 summit in Japan.


POTUS said a deal with China was “95 percent” done when Secretary Mnuchin and USTR Lighthizer we’re informed in China the deal was off. That’s when he ordered the tariff move.

On war with Iran, “we’ll see what happens,” POTUS said.
