Washington: President Donald Trump has said he is "not interested" in reopening negotiations on the trade deal with China, days after the US warned Beijing of very significant consequences for not honouring the bilateral agreement early this year to end their bruising trade war.

Trump's remarks came in response to a question on a report in Hong Kong's South China Morning Post which said that China would like to reopen negotiations on the trade deal to make the terms more favourable to Beijing. Is this something you'd be interested in doing? he was asked.

No. Not at all. Not even a little bit. No, I'm not interested. We signed the deal. I had heard that, too -- they'd like to reopen the trade talk to make it a better deal for them, Trump told reporters during a news conference in the Rose Garden of the White House on Monday.
