The US was not breaking off talks with China, he said.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would be happy to keep tariffs on Chinese imports in place, adding that China is mistaken if it hopes to negotiate trade later with a Democratic presidential administration.

"We've got to do everything we can to build up the American economy and stop sitting here and trying to build up the Chinese economy", he said.

"The president is correct in asserting what we have to do with China, how he's doing it though is empowering them to hurt people", House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said at an event in Washington on Wednesday, after previously citing China's treatment of Uighurs, a Muslim ethnic minority, and Tibetans, along with the wider issue of human rights.
