"Why shouldn't China rip off the United States if we have people allowing that to happen?" he said.

The White House in recent weeks has reached out to the chief executives of German automakers including Daimler AG, BMW AG and Volkswagen AG about meeting to discuss the status of auto trade.

Meanwhile, the US, Canada and Mexico are expected in Buenos Aires on Friday to sign a revamped version of the North American trade pact NAFTA, which Trump excoriated when running for president.

Putin would be one of several leaders to meet the Saudi prince, who is also expected to hold talks with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and United Nations chief Antonio Guterres.

The statement comes before a dinner meeting Saturday in Buenos Aires, Argentina, between President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping.

But don't expect the president to emerge from his dinner with Xi or his private chat with Putin and announce a trade pact or that Russian Federation has agreed to cool its aggressive actions in Ukraine or Syria.

"Without cooperation on trade issues, bilateral relations would drastically worsen".

"I think we are at a crossroads", Xi said.

In a pair of Twitter posts on Wednesday, Trump pointed to a longstanding USA tariff on imported pickup trucks that has helped US -based automakers dominate that market. For instance, the administration has attempted - mostly unsuccessfully - to build a unified front on trade matters with the European Union to force change from China.

"Steel jobs are coming back to America, just like I predicted", Trump tweeted Wednesday.

Both GM and Ford have said the rise in raw material costs generated by the tariffs will cost each company about US$1b of earnings.

The Prime Minister said the participants would deliberate on the situation of the global economy and trade, worldwide financial and tax systems, the future of work, women empowerment, infrastructure and sustainable development.

Trump, on the other hand, has been widely criticized for his response to the killing. Other local units of GM and Renault will be given less orders for the United States from its headquarters, they added.

President Donald Trump said he is very close to "doing something" with China ahead of a planned meeting with President Xi Jinping, raising expectations again that the two leaders may be able to hash out a ceasefire in their trade war. "And if it's not made, we will be taking in billions and billions of dollars", said Trump. "That's in the interests not only of our two countries, it's in the interests of the whole world", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in Moscow.

Lam thinks the most Xi can get from Trump will be a delay in raising the tariffs. Trump has also foreshadowed imposing tariffs on the remaining US$267 billion of China's exports to the US.

Trump had first threatened those tariffs and higher tariffs on the initial $200 billion in goods last summer.

But messages from the opposition party ahead of the summit have been mixed.

The last time Trump met at length with Putin was over the summer at a summit in Helsinki, Finland.

David Shambaugh, Director of China Policy Program at George Washington University's Elliott School of International Affairs, says the "competitive, stressed, complicated, and fraught relationship" between the US and China is a "new normal". "It will be seen as weak".

"There is a good possibility that a deal can be made, and he is open to that", Kudlow told reporters on November 27.
