WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he had no specific deadline for a trade deal with China that would allow Beijing to escape the imposition of 25 percent tariffs on $300 billion worth of exports to the United States.

“I have no deadline. My deadline is what’s up here?” Trump told reporters as he pointed at his head during a White House news conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda. “We’ll figure out the deadline.”
