US President Donald Trump said he will hold talks at the White House on Friday with China's vice premier and top trade negotiator, Liu He, a meeting that comes a week before Washington is set to further ratchet up the trade war with higher tariffs on Chinese imports.

"Big day of negotiations with China. They want to make a deal, but do I? I meet with the Vice Premier tomorrow at The White House," Trump tweeted on Thursday.
