WASHINGTON -- By pushing back a proposed summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping, U.S. President Donald Trump and his administration appear to be dialing up the pressure on Beijing for further concessions on trade in the face of a March 1 negotiation deadline.

The sides are discussing structural issues in order to come to a deal. The White House announced on Friday that U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will meet with Chinese officials in Beijing Feb. 14-15 to discuss trade issues.
