WASHINGTON/BEIJING (Reuters) - The United States and China appeared at a deadlock over trade negotiations on Sunday as Washington demanded promises of concrete changes to Chinese law and Beijing said it would not swallow any 'bitter fruit' that harmed its interests. The trade war between the world's top two economies escalated on Friday, with the United States hiking tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods after President Donald Trump said Beijing 'broke the deal' by reneging on earlier commitments made during months of negotiations. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow told the 'Fox News Sunday' program that China needs to agree to 'very strong' enforcement provisions for an eventual deal and said the sticking point was Beijing's reluctance to put into law changes that had been agreed upon.
