There is no date yet, preparations for the summit of the United States envoy Shi Trump

Washington and Beijing did not set a date for the upcoming summit between US President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, US ambassador to China Terje Pranstad (pictured to the left) and told the Wall Street Journal on Friday. The US envoy failed to prepare for the meeting on his way, Trade is "long and difficult" where both sides need to resolve "a large majority of issues" before the planned summit.

Earlier, a report showed that Chinese officials are concerned that they may not be able to reach a trade deal with the United States despite progress in the negotiations as they expect Washington to make unfavorable final terms.

The White House presented an unbalanced budget on Monday

The White House will unveil an unbalanced budget next Monday that should set a course for Congress to begin work on spending legislation for the next fiscal year, CNBC reported on Friday, citing two people familiar with the issue. It is said that the proposed budget will not balance revenues with federal government spending, despite optimistic growth forecasts and sharp cuts in discretionary programs outside the Pentagon.

According to earlier reports, US President Donald Trump will ask for sharp cuts in domestic spending levels, including a "historic" 5% drop in discretionary spending, a plan that congressional lawmakers are expected to oppose. At the same time, Trump will also push up defense spending by avoiding budget limits through war contingency plans. The White House's new budget plan is widely expected to produce another battle for government funding and a possible new government closure next fall.
