WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said on Tuesday the prospects for the first part of a U.S. trade deal with China look good.

“I think the trajectory toward a phase 1 deal is pretty good,” Mulvaney said at a Wall Street Journal event. He repeated President Donald Trump’s assertion that he does not feel pressured to get a trade agreement signed with Beijing before the November 2020 election.
