The more conmunication,the better relationship we will be.

Washington (CNN) — President Donald Trump told Fox and Friends on Tuesday he didn’t live up to a campaign promise to stare down China over manipulating its currency because, well, he got along better than he thought with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

"I didn’t soften my stance," Trump said. "Look, China came to the United States, the President, who I really developed a very good relationship with. I think he is a terrific person. I really got to know him very well over a two-day period. we were together hours and hours and hours by ourselves. We had a 15-minute scheduled meeting and it lasted for three hours. the same thing happened the next day. We have a good chemistry together."

It’s hard to see how Trump is not changing his stance, since one of the pillars of the economic plan he released in June of 2016 called for the president to instruct "the Treasury Secretary to label China a currency manipulator."

By way of explanation, Trump said China is changing its stance on North Korea and he didn’t want to jeopardize those actions by bringing up the economic issues.

"What am I going to start trade war with China in the middle of him working on a bigger problem with North Korea?" Trump said. "I’m dealing with China with great respect. I have great respect for him. We’ll see what he can do. Maybe he won’t be able to help. That’s possible. I think he is trying. Maybe he won’t be able to help. That’s a whole differential story."

Trump later added:

"What am I going to do in the middle of him talking to North Korea? I’m going to hit him with currency manipulation? This is a fake media that does a number - think of it. (Xi) is working so nicely that many coal ships have been sent back. Fuel is being sent back. Nobody has ever seen such a positive response on our behalf from China. The fake media goes, ’Donald Trump has changed his stance on China.’ I haven’t changed my stance. China is trying to help us. I don’t know if they’re going to be able to or not. But why would I want to start heavy heavy trade or currency statements against somebody who is out there right now trying to stop what could be a very bad situation. You understand that."
