Trump tweets: ‘Time will tell’ on trade with China

President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday morning that only "time will tell" on trade with China, in addition to congratulating the military for the Syria airstrikes.

"It was a great honor to have President Xi Jinping and Madame Peng Liyuan of China as our guests in the United States. Tremendous…" the president wrote. "…goodwill and friendship was formed, but only time will tell on trade."

Throughout the campaign and upon taking office, Trump often bashed China and blamed it for the loss of U.S. jobs. Trump has also criticized trade deals such as NAFTA.

Last week, Trump signed an executive order that instructed his administration to examine the U.S. trade deficit with China and other major trading partners and to report back within 90 days with actions to help reduce the gap.

In addition, Trump also praised the military in a tweet.

"Congratulations to our great military men and women for representing the United States, and the world, so well in the Syria attack," he wrote.

The airstrikes targeting a regime airbase in Homs were conducted Thursday following a chemical attack in Syria.
