U.S. President Donald Trump expressed confidence that trade tensions with China will be defused in a tweet on Sunday, saying Washington and Beijing will reach an agreement that averts a trade war.

"A deal will be made on intellectual property," Trump said on Twitter. "China will take down its trade barriers, because it is the right thing to do. Taxes will become reciprocal," he added.
