Trump and Xi Could Meet in Late February

U.S. and Chinese officials are discussing a potential meeting between Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping in late February, two sources told CNBC.

The meeting would take place after a summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and just before the March 2 deadline for a U.S.-China trade deal. However, the U.S. is concerned about the optics of a deal being announced on Chinese soil. The U.S. also wants prior commitments from China. Allies like Japan and South Korea are also worried about back-to-back meetings with nondemocratic leaders and would want to be briefed afterward.
