WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States and China will likely have a signing of Phase 1 of a new trade deal early in the new year, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said on Monday.

“We’ll probably have a signing on that within the next week or so – we’re just waiting for the translation,” Navarro said in an interview with Fox News.
