There are more hopeful signs a trade deal could come soon with China. Farm Journal Washington Correspondent Jim Wiesemeyer says China's leader Xi Jinping will visit the White House in June.

He says the visit will happen before the G20 Summit in Japan. Wiesemeyer says the White House is currently looking at the second or third week of June for Xi's visit, but CNBC says the U.S. and China may actually announce a trade deal by next Friday.

China's chief negotiator is leading more than 100 officials for talks in Washington next week.  Those negotiations will officially resume next Wednesday.
