He said he was "going a little bit easier" on China regarding trade, because he hoped to get President Xi Jinping to put pressure on North Korea, but added that "the worst of all trade deals" the USA has is with China, followed by "a bad deal " with South Korea, losing $40 billion every year.

Waters, ranking member on the Financial Services Committee, and fellow committee Democrats will request through resolution of inquiry from the Treasury Department information on credit extended by Russian banks and Russian government officials to Trump and those in his orbit and information on the Russian mirror trading scandal.
