>> Donald Trump all smiles after a day of talks in China Thursday, after he and leader Xi Jinping agreed there's still a solution to the North Korea crisis. Trump again pressed China to fix what he calls unfair trade, though he added that he doesn't fault Beijing for the deficit.
>> Who can blame a country for being able to take advantage of another country for the benefit of its citizens?>> China has given Trump the red carpet treatment on his two day visit and as Reuters' Tony Monroe reports it's left an impression.>> Clearly the positive vibes and positive energy between President Trump and President Xi continue here in Beijing today.
President Trump was full of praise for his counterpart and also full of praise for China.>> Again, you are a very special man.>> They both said they believe a solution on North Korea is possible, but there was no specific in terms of what that solution might entail.
Trump did call on Xi to do more, or on China to do more in terms of cutting off China's financial ties with North Korea. He also called on Russia to do more to address the North Korea issue.>> The two leaders also announced $250 billion worth of deals between US and Chinese companies, although there are questions over how much that addresses wider complaints about China.
>> Yeah, it's a big number, it's an impressive number. And we're talking lots of multi-million dollar deals from the likes of Boeing and General Electric, and Qualcomm. And now on a lot of these deals, there is not that much detail. In some cases they are non-binding, oftentimes these deals are extensions of existing agreements or perhaps announcement of things that have long been in the works.
And there is also concern among some in the US business community that these sorts of announcements paper over some of the deeper seated concerns they have about their ability to do business in the Chinese market.>> North Korea, for its part, hasn't stayed quite while Trump's visiting their neighbor.
State media saying Thursday that Trump's quote, hysterical behavior brings only fear to US society and if nuclear war breaks out, America is wholly responsible.
