Xi Jinping and Donald Trump last met at a G20 summit in Buenos Aires
United States PresidentDonald Trumpsaid he will not meet Chinese President Xi Jinping before a March 1 deadline to avert higher American tariffs on Chinese goods, intensifying fears the two will not strike a deal before the end of a 90-day truce.
Larry Kudlow, Trump's top economics advisor, told reporters Thursday he still anticipates a meeting between Trump and Xi, CNBC reports, but the details are not yet planned.
Addressing reporters at the White House, Trump answered in the negative when asked if a meeting could happen by March 1. "Probably too soon", according to Reuters.

The negative mood sweeping across financial markets late in the trading week continues to highlight how investor sentiment remains extremely sensitive to any changes in the narrative with US-China trade developments.
His position, together with a threat to raise tariffs on more Chinese imports on March 2, may be a USA tactic to extract concessions from China, especially in structural areas such as alleged intellectual property theft and forced technology transfer.
Businesses have been planning for the scenario of rising tariffs at the beginning of next month, by rushing imports and stockpiling goods - although that doesn't mean companies are embracing increased duties. However, the purchases don't offset the damage done to the soybean industry since tariffs were imposed. She described the deadline as a "black cloud". S. were still far away on striking a trade deal. The two leaders could also speak by phone, the official said. "They're making a mistake because they need to be prepared", he said.
