Trump, speaking at the White House following a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, also said the US was engaged in serious trade talks with the European Union, adding that US-France trade relations were very good. "I think China is very serious; we're very".

Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Saturday called on the United States and China to resolve trade tensions through rules-based multilateral institutions.

In a speech earlier this month, Chinese president Xi Jinping said his country would open itself wider to foreign companies.

Mnuchin told reporters over the weekend he was considering a trip, prompting Beijing to announce Sunday that China "welcomes" the move.

But the administration has indicated it's willing to negotiate with China and avert a trade war, a prospect that's rattled financial markets.
