Washington: President Donald Trump said in a note on Twitter on Tuesday that he told China’s president Xi Jinping that Beijing would get a better trade deal with Washington if it helped solve the US problem with North Korea.

“I explained to the president of China that a trade deal with the U.S. will be far better for them if they solve the North Korean problem!” Trump, who held talks with Xi in Florida last week, wrote on Twitter.
