Trump says U.S.-China trade talks went very well on Thursday

WASHINGTON, Oct 10 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said trade talks between U.S. and Chinese officials on Thursday went very well and the two sides had a very, very good negotiation.

Trump was speaking to reporters at the White House after top U.S. and Chinese negotiators met for the first time since late July to try to ease a bitter 15-month trade war.
