EXISTING GRAPHICS MAY BE OVERWRITTEN BY CLIENT'S OWN GRAPHICS BUT NO FURTHER EDITS ARE PERMITTED, INCLUDING FOR LENGTH** (SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SAYING: "I think the biggest problem to a trade deal is that China would love to wait." U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday warned China not to delay a trade deal until after the 2020 presidential election, saying that waiting out his administration would come at a cost.
(SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SAYING: "They would just love if I got defeated so they could deal with someone like Elizabeth Warren or Sleepy Joe Biden because then they'd be allowed to continue to rip off our country." His remarks came as U.S. trade representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin arrived in Shanghai Tuesday for two days of trade talks.
In an early morning tweet the president slammed the perceived wait-and-see strategy, saying quote "The problem with them waiting, however, is that if & when I win, the deal that they get will be much tougher than what we are negotiating now...or no deal at all." One 2020 Democrat weighing in on trade this week is Elizabeth Warren.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, U.S. SENATOR ELIZABETH WARREN, SAYING: "But before we start negotiating with anyone, we say, 'You've got to raise your standards.
(FLASH) We can't use trade as a way to drive down standards across the world.
We need to use the leverage of American markets to drive up standards around the world." The Massachusetts Senator released a trade plan on Monday and railed against Trump's trade policies, saying multi-national companies hold all the cards.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, U.S. SENATOR ELIZABETH WARREN, SAYING: "His plan is just to keep Americans divided so nobody notices who's really picking our pockets.
And it's the corporate CEOs and the bizillionaires.
The government's working great for them." A new poll out Tuesday morning shows Warren surging in Iowa - the first state to vote on a Democratic contender for the 2020 election.
The poll, which was first reported by political news website Axios, has Warren leading in the Iowa Caucus for the first time, ahead of former Vice President Joe Biden.
