It was unclear, however, if President Donald Trump would accept the deal as congressional aides said it did not contain the $5.7 billion he wants for a border wall. urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL1N2060IA"Even though Trump hasn't settled on a deal, the way investors are looking at it is that this is more positive than what we had on Monday," said Randy Hare, director of equity research at Huntington Private Bank in Cincinnati, Ohio. "The news on trade right now may not be as strong but it is still being viewed as a positive." Trade talks resumed on Monday and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer arrived in Beijing on Tuesday, ahead of high-level talks scheduled later this week. urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL3N2072YKThe world's two biggest economies are seeking to strike a deal before a March 1 deadline, when additional U.S. tariffs on Chinese imports will come into force.
