U.S., China negotiators talk but no date for trade summit

Speaking at her first formal briefing in more than a month, press secretary Sarah Sanders wouldn't say whether Trump believes Democrats hate Jews, which is what he reportedly told Republican donors over the weekend at his Florida estate.

According to Jim Acosta, President Trump condemning anti-Jewish sentiment so forcefully was "beneath everybody" and asked Sanders if Trump would tone it down.

Trump's comments came after Democrats refused to directly condemn anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar by name and watered down a resolution originally drafted to punish her.

Almost two dozen Republicans broke from the party line to vote against the resolution in protest over the measure being watered down, and many - including Trump and Vice President Mike Pence - have called for Omar's removal from the high-profile Foreign Affairs Committee.

"That's a question you ought to ask Democrats", Sanders shot back.

The press briefing was Sanders' first since January. "He's going to make a deal if it's a good deal, if it's in the best interest of America, and if he doesn't feel like it's a good deal, it's not worth just signing a piece of paper", Sanders said. "I don't think he's going to want it to get involved before 2020".

"Is it just me being cynical - I think Manafort is going to get pardoned by Trump, I don't think any of this matters", Abrams said this afternoon while on his SiriusXM show.

Top US and Chinese officials held phone talks on Tuesday to discuss the next steps in trade negotiations, Chinese state media said, as the White House said no date has been set for a summit. "The president has been clear on what his position is, certainly what his support is for the people and the community of Israel".

"The president has laid out clearly his position on this matter", she replied. She added that "we're continuing negotiations with China".

CNN's Jim Acosta questions U.S. President Donald Trump during his news conference following Tuesday's midterm U.S. congressional elections at the White House in Washington, U.S., November 7, 2018.

All but two of the 42 Jewish members of Congress are Democrats. When the final resolution passed the House, it did not mention Omar by name.
