NEW YORK -- President Donald Trump said Friday that the U.S. has not actually agreed to roll back any tariffs on China, contradicting earlier statements from both sides.

"I haven't agreed to anything," Trump told reporters. "China would like to get somewhat of a rollback, not a complete rollback, because they know I won't do it."
