WASHINGTON: U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday signaled a new direction in U.S. and China's trade talks, saying there needed to be "a different structure" and citing difficulties such as verifying compliance to any deal."Our trade deal with China is moving along nicely, but in the end we will probably have to use a different structure in that this will be too hard to get done and to verify results after completion," Trump wrote in a post on Twitter.
