President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the U.S. and China will have a “very good chance at making a deal” on trade.

The statement offers some optimism that the world’s two largest economies will be able to settle their differences and avoid a trade war after weeks of simmering tensions over the issue.

“I think China is very serious, and we're very serious. We have no choice but to be very serious,” Trump told reporters between meetings with visiting French President Emmanuel Macron at the White House.
