U.S. President Donald Trump set the tone for a tense first meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping next week by tweeting that the United States could no longer tolerate massive trade deficits and job losses.

The White House said Trump would host Xi next Thursday and Friday at his Mar-a-Lago retreat in Florida.

It said Trump and his wife, Melania, would host Xi and his wife, at a dinner next Thursday.

In a tweet last evening, Trump said the highly anticipated meeting between the leaders of the world's two largest economies, which is also expected to cover differences over North Korea and China's strategic ambitions in the South China Sea, "will be a very difficult one."
