After two days in Shanghi, little progress is being reported in trade talks between the U.S. and China. The low-expectations from both countries have dampened hopes of a potential breakthrough. Chinese media reports call the discussions "candid, efficient and constructive on major economic and trade issues."

U.S. President Donald Trump has cast doubt on any hopes of an imminent easing in trade tensions between the U.S. in China as well. The President accused Beijing of not delivering on promises to buy more U.S. agricultural products.

The President tweeted about China not purchasing as many agricultural products as promised.

“That’s is the problem with China, they just don’t come through…My team is negotiating with them now, but they always change the deal in the end to their benefit,” he tweeted.

The two sides will hold next round of high-level trade talks in the U.S. in early September.
