USA Today reports:


NEW YORK — President-elect Donald Trump has touched base with one of the countries he criticized the most during his presidential campaign: China.

Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping spoke by phone on Sunday and agreed to meet “at any early date,” according to statements from both camps.

“During the call, the leaders established a clear sense of mutual respect for one another, and President-elect Trump stated that he believes the two leaders will have one of the strongest relationships for both countries moving forward,” said a statement from the Trump transition team.

During the campaign, Trump criticized China’s trade practices, and said its entry into the World Trade Organization helped lead to the “theft” of U.S. industrial jobs.
