Trump says he will decide if China deal goes ahead

U.S. President Trump meets with NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg, ahead of the NATO summit, in London

LONDON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said a trade deal with China would only happen if he wanted it to, and he thought he was doing very well in the talks.

"I'm doing very well on a deal with China, if I want to make it," Trump told reporters during a meeting with the head of NATO in London.

"I don't think it's up to if they want to make it, it's if I want to make it. We'll see what happens."

"I'm doing very well if I want to make a deal, I don't know that I want to make it, they're going to find out pretty soon."
