According to CNBC, speaking at the G7 summit in France today, August 26, President Donald Trump praised Chinese President Xi Jinping and welcomed Xi’s desire to reach an agreement with the US.

“Last night China called our top trade negotiators and said ‘let’s get back to the negotiating table’, so we’re going back to the negotiating table and I think they want to do something.”
