NEW YORK -- U.S. President Donald Trump said Thursday that he is currently not on speaking terms with Chinese President Xi Jinping and that Washington could go as far as severing the "whole relationship" with Beijing if trade relations do not improve.

"I have a very good relationship [with Xi] but I just -- right now I don't want to speak to him," Trump told Fox Business in a morning interview at the White House. "I don't want to speak to him."
