U.S. President Donald Trump said any deal with China must ensure “real, structural change” takes place to narrow the country’s trade deficit and save American jobs, as a U.S. delegation was reportedly set to visit Beijing for new talks next week on the bilateral tariff dispute.

“I have great respect for President Xi, and we are now working on a new trade deal with China. But it must include real, structural change to end unfair trade practices, reduce our chronic trade deficit, and protect American jobs,” Trump said in his State of the Union address delivered Tuesday Washington D.C. time.
