"I think anything is possible," Trump said when asked about what he would do next in his trade war with Beijing.

"I can say we are having very meaningful talks, much more meaningful, I would say, than at any time.

"I think, for the most part, it's because we are doing very well. China is a great country, I consider President Xi (Jinping) to be a great leader," he added during a press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

"Look, they are losing millions and millions of jobs, they're going to other countries and if I was them, I'd want to make a deal."

Earlier, Trump said Chinese officials had made contact on Saturday evening and said "let's get back to the table. So we'll be getting back to the table."

The United States is trying to force China into deep reforms of its trading model to end the theft of intellectual property, lower subsidies and open up Chinese markets to US companies.
