WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday said he would remove all U.S. tariffs on Chinese imports as soon as the two countries completed the Phase 2 part of their trade agreement, adding that he does not expect there to be a Phase 3 pact.

“I’m leaving them on because otherwise, we have no cards to negotiate with,” Trump said at a White house event to sign the Phase 1 deal. “But they will all come off as soon as we finish Phase 2.”
