A U.S. China trade deal continues to move closer. Chinese officials saying they're working with their U.S. counterparts day and night. The Chinese Vice commerce minister says he is optimistic about the next step in the trade war talks. He said slapping tariffs on each other was bad for workers, farmers, exporters and manufacturers.
