Asia Markets: Asian markets pull back as trade tensions resurface

Asian markets slipped in early trading Wednesday as trade tensions between the U.S. and China rose to the forefront again.

Following reports Monday that trade negotiations could resume soon, President Donald Trump threw water on investors’ optimism Tuesday, saying “We have a long way to go” before any deal. Trump added that he could impose tariffs on another $325 billion of Chinese imports if he wants to.

Separately, amid reports that the Trump administration may soon allow some U.S. companies to resume business with Chinese tech giant Huawei Technologies Co., bipartisan legislation was introduced in the Senate that would block Huawei from being removed from the government’s blacklist without congressional approval.
