Donald Trump was tweeting earlier about trade talks with China.

The US President has now been speaking to reporters at the White House.

"This isn't going to be a small deal with China. This is either going to be a very big deal, or it's going to be a deal that we'll just postpone for a little while," he said.

Earlier he had appeared to be hinting at another summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
