WASHINGTON/NEW YORK -- U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday met with China's top trade envoy, Vice Premier Liu He, at the White House, saying that a deal could be reached in about four weeks, in which case a summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping would be held in Washington.

"Within the four weeks -- or maybe less, maybe more, whatever it takes -- something very monumental could be announced," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office ahead of his meeting with Liu.
