President Trump just gave Fox News superstar Tucker Carlson the breaking news. What he revealed on national television is huge, and it could be about to make history.
Since before Trump was elected, he’s been calling for China to be held accountable for taking advantage of America on trade. But it sounds like the ice is thawing in his strong negotiations with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

“Very big deal,” Trump continued. “I guess you’d say the largest deal ever made of any kind, not only trade.” To be sure, to have a deal with China before his first term ends would be monumental.
