Trump and Xi are expected to meet at the Group of 20 summit in Buenos Aires, discussing trade matters on the sidelines as a continuation of established high level talks between the two nations.

Three US government sources told Reuters on Wednesday that China had sent a response to US demands on those and other issues, but gave no further details on its contents. "He was freelancing and he's not representing the president or the administration". "We're looking for a change of posture".

Pence also said he believed that Beijing fully understands the U.S.'s position and the seriousness of its stance in the ongoing trade dispute.

Washington has been ramping up pressure on Beijing in recent years, imposing tariffs on Chinese goods and lately accusing China of interfering in U.S. domestic politics.

US President Donald Trump has imposed tariffs on US$250 billion of Chinese imports to force concessions from Beijing on the list of demands that would change the terms of trade between the two countries. He has often pointed to alleged currency manipulation, arguing that Beijing's policies hurt the US financially.

And in the best possible twist, Navarro will nearly surely escape once more, free to say something dangerously insane about China and Wall Street before being punished... Trump has also threatened to impose tariffs on all remaining Chinese imports, about US$267 billion worth, if Beijing fails to address USA demands. -China trade has cost some 3.4 million American jobs.

"This is a follow up to Pence's speech at the Hudson Institute, which was widely seen as a announcing a full frontal cold war stance with China, and that follows itself from the publication of the National Defense Strategy at the beginning of this year, which obviously changes the priorities of United States foreign security policy", Woodward told hosts Brian Becker and John Kiriakou.

In an interview with Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin in which Pence focused on the White House's Indo-Pacific policy, the vice president said his trip to the region "is meant to show the United States has no intention of ceding influence or control" to Beijing.
