China says it’s striving for trade deal with US

China said yesterday it is still striving to reach a trade deal with the United States, a day after President Donald Trump accused Beijing of not making sufficient concessions. Negotiators from both sides have been working towards a partial deal that includes bigger Chinese orders for US farm goods and better protections for intellectual property. But Trump Wednesday accused Beijing of not "stepping up" to the level he expected, making him reluctant to conclude a bargain.
