Already responded to China in different ways: Trump on Chinese sanctions

US President Donald Trump on Monday said that the US "has already responded" in many ways to the sanctions posed by Beijing on American officials and added that phase-1 deal with China means "very little".

Speaking about the Iran and US deal, the US President said, "Iran would make a deal with the US within a month if he wins the elections in November".
