This week, China and the United States held major economic and trade talks.

Representatives from the world’s two largest economies sat down for the first China-U.S. Comprehensive Economic Dialogue in Washington, where they discussed ways to move forward with their economic relationship.

Meanwhile, U.S. President Trump has been making news on a whole range of issues including criticism of his Attorney General Jeff Sessions, during an interview with The New York Times.

And on Friday, Trump lost a key member of his staff with the resignation of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
