(Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump said the partial U.S.-China trade deal may lead to as much as $20 billion in sales of Boeing Co. airplanes, in addition to spurring billion of dollars in purchases of agricultural goods.
“Other aspects of the deal are also great -- technology, financial services, 16-20 Billion in Boeing Planes etc,” Trump tweeted Saturday without any specifics about the aircraft portion.
In unveiling the overall deal on Friday, Trump stressed a surge in Chinese purchases of U.S. farm products -- an offer Beijing offered more than two years ago. It will be accompanied by unspecified commitments on intellectual property. No mention was made at the White House of aircraft purchases.
