President Trump is set to make an announcement on his plans Friday during an anticipated news conference on China. The White House said he will announce new U.S. policies on Beijing, but failed to provide further details on the matter.

“We are not happy with China, we are not happy with what’s happened,” he stated. “All over the world, people are suffering…186 countries…we’re not happy.”
