On Wednesday, CNBC, citing sources described as familiar with the thinking, reported that the 45th president is attempting to accelerate the completion of a trade deal with China, in an effort to secure a fresh catalyst for markets.The report comes after Bloomberg News said Trump has been increasingly aware that negotiating progress between Beijing and Washington has helped to extend a bullish stock-market run that is on the verge of a record for duration since the crisis-era low was put in on March 9, 2009.A White House spokeswoman declined to comment on the reports that Trump wanted to expedite a China trade pact specifically to further boost the stock market.
