Trump defends about-face on labeling China a currency manipulator

President Trump on Sunday defended his recent about-face on calling China a currency manipulator, saying he welcomes the county's help in dealing with North Korea.

During their discussions in Mar-a-Lago recently, Trump encouraged Chinese President Xi Jinping to rein in the actions of its hostile neighbor in exchange for a favorable trade policy.

He also wrote that he told Chinese President Xi Jinping during his visit to the USA that "a trade deal with the U.S. will be far better for them if they solve the North Korean problem!" The North Korean Foreign Ministry said earlier this day that the alleged missile launch had not been announced officially, though it's Pyongyang's "sovereign right" to conduct such tests.

The declaration also came days after Trump - in a turnabout from his campaign stance - declared in an interview that his administration would not label China a currency manipulator, which could have triggered investigations.

While China has reportedly suspended package tours to North Korea, British travel company Koryo Tours said it would keep sending tourists to the North.

Trump is the first USA president in over 40 years to not release his tax returns. Senator John McCain said this may be the "first test" of the Trump presidency.

A few minutes after his tweet related to North Korea on Sunday, Trump sent out a second one.

Last week, Trump appeared to rule out deeper American military intervention in Syria beyond retaliatory strikes if Syria's president continued to attack civilians with chemical weapons.
