WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday welcomed a promise by Chinese President Xi Jinping to open China’s economy further, expressing confidence the world’s two largest economies would come through an ongoing trade spat and “make great progress together.”

“Very thankful for President Xi of China’s kind words on tarrifs (sic) and automobile barriers...also, his enlightenment on intellectual property and technology transfers,” Trump wrote in a post on Twitter. “We will make great progress together!”
