Trump said on Sunday that he’d delay additional tariffs on Chinese goods originally scheduled to begin on Mar 1.

He cited “substantial progress” in trade talks between the US and China in several of his Twitter posts in a series of posts on Twitter.

While he mentioned the delay of the tariffs, he didn’t articulate a new deadline.

Trump also confirmed on Sunday that he and Chinese President Xi Jinping will meet in late March at the US President's Mar-a-Lago golf club in Palm Beach, Florida.

In addition, he said at the White House that there’d be "very big news over the next week or two" if trade talks go well.

While the two countries were reportedly to be far apart on the issue of forced technology transfer, China earlier promised to buy up to $1.2 trillion of American goods.
