lks vice premier, leo hogg, was supposed to get on the plane. Yesterday in china and arrived here this afternoon, that is not going to happen. A spokesperson for the chinese foreign ministry, saying this quote. We also are learning about the situation. What i can tell youis that the chinese team is preparing to visit the united states for trade talks well, that team was supposed to be on the plane. They did not get on that plane. Yesterday, it's supposed to arrive this afternoon. It will not arrive this afternoon. The situation he's talking about are those two tweets from president donald trump that says that the talks are moving too slowly. President saying that china is trying to renegotiate these talks, the president also adding he's going to increase tariffs on two hundred billion dollars with the chinese goods from 10 percent to 25 percent. On friday, the president saying that these talks were supposed to go ahead on wednesday.

Again, those are injeopardy now, as the trade delegation did not get on the plane, they will not arrive today. Good information, edward, it didn't move the market, a ton thing, but that was good, solid information. That'S a vital detail, edward lawrence in dc. Coming through again. Thank you, edward.
