Some people just don't get it!" the U.S. president wrote, after tweeting that the tariffs can be "completely avoided if you by from a non-Tariffed Country, or you buy the product inside the United States of America (the best idea).
Top White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Sunday there was a "strong possibility" Trump will meet Xi at a G20 summit in Japan in late June.

China could also place sanctions on United States planes and vehicles, he said, making it more hard for these products to enter the Chinese market.
"It's no big deal". That's why China wants to make a deal so badly!
