We're going to win either way, says Donald Trump on spat with China

The world's two biggest economies are nine months into a trade war that has cost billions of dollars, roiled financial markets and upended supply chains.

President Donald Trump said on April 15 he believed the United States would emerge from its trade dispute with China as a winner, no matter what happened.

"We're going to win either way. We either win by getting a deal or we win by not getting a deal," Trump said during a visit to a business roundtable in Burnsville, Minnesota.

The world's two biggest economies are nine months into a trade war that has cost billions of dollars, roiled financial markets and upended supply chains.

Trump's administration has slapped tariffs on $250 billion worth of imports of Chinese goods to press demands for an end to policies that Washington says hurt US companies competing with Chinese firms. China responded with its own tit-for-tat tariffs on US goods.

Trump's Treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, said earlier on April 15 that trade negotiators are making a lot of progress. He told Fox Business Network there is more work to do, however, including enforcement.
