President Trump thanked Chinese President Xi Jinping Tuesday; praising the leader after he pledged to reduce international tariffs and reform his country’s approach to intellectual property rights.

The President extended the olive branch on social media within hours of Xi’s statement regarding trade with the United States, saying, “Very thankful for President Xi of China’s kind words on tariffs and automobile barriers.”

“Very thankful for President Xi of China’s kind words on tarrifs and automobile barriers…also, his enlightenment on intellectual property and technology transfers. We will make great progress together!” tweeted the President.

Trump’s comments come hours after the Chinese President addressed an international business conference, easing fears of an international trade war and saying “China’s door of opening up will not be closed and will only open wider.”
