President Donald Trump said on Tuesday the United States still has a long way to go to conclude a trade deal with China but could impose tariffs on an additional $325 billion worth of Chinese goods if it needed to do so.

Trump, speaking at a Cabinet meeting at the White House, said China was supposed to be buying U.S. farm products and his administration was watching to see if Beijing would do so.
