Trump says he could wait to finish China trade deal until after 2020 election

President Trump on Thursday said that he may wait until after the 2020 presidential election to complete negotiations on a so-called phase two trade agreement with China because he could have more leverage after his reelection bid in November, and hence get a better deal. The president and Chinese representatives plan to sign a long-sought initial piece of a trade agreement on Jan. 15.
