US President Donald Trump has said he is likely to sign the mini-trade deal with China next month on the sidelines of the summit when he meets with Chinese President Xi Jinping. He had announced the deal earlier this month.

The new mini-deal includes a surge in Chinese purchases of American farm exports and also covers intellectual property, financial services and currency exchange.
