Wanting to end the ongoing trade war between the United States and China, President Trump's advisers have informally discussed hosting a summit at Trump's Florida club Mar-a-Lago next month with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Axios reports. Two administration officials told Axios that while the meeting could take place as early as mid-March, nothing is set in stone. A third official said that locations other than Mar-a-Lago have been floated, including Beijing, and it's too early to say if Trump and Xi will even meet. On March 1, Trump must decide if he will increase tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods from 10 percent to 25 percent, and he had wanted to meet with Xi before the tariff ceasefire expires.
