Trump mulls pushing March 1 deadline on tariffs on Chinese goods

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that trade talks with China were going well and suggested he was open to pushing off the March 1 deadline to complete negotiations. Tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports are scheduled to rise to 25 percent by March 1 if the world’s two largest economies do not settle their trade dispute, but Trump has suggested several times that he would be open to postponing the deadline.
