After meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Trump promises 'lots of very potentially bad problems will be going away'

President Trump said Friday that he's well on his way to having an "outstanding" relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping, after the two made "tremendous progress" at their two-day summit at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. Though Trump did not offer any specifics in his brief remarks, he claimed that "lots of very potentially bad problems will be going away." "I think truly progress has been made," Trump told a group of a reporters who had gathered for a photo-op of the leaders.

However, when asked if they'd agreed on what to do about North Korea's nuclear activity, Trump did not respond. Xi and Trump were also expected to talk about trade and climate change, neither of which Trump elaborated upon in his remarks Friday.

Xi will depart Friday after a working lunch.
