"He was freelancing. He was not representing the president or the administration". It's about getting China to agree to U.S. demands, should China want to "avoid an all-out war", the IN native told Washington Post reporter Josh Rogin aboard Air Force Two for an article published Tuesday.

Mr Pence is in Singapore to represent the United States at the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) where fears a protracted long-term economic and strategic confrontation between Washington and Beijing is the hot topic.

"I think much of that will depend on Argentina", Pence told the reporter.

China has delivered a written response to USA demands for wide-ranging trade reforms, three U.S. government sources said on Wednesday, a move that could trigger negotiations to bring an end to a withering trade war between the world's top economies.

We're already looking forward to Round Three! "They know what the president's position is", he said, adding that he believed they "got the message". Trump has also threatened to impose tariffs on all remaining Chinese imports, about $267 billion worth, if Beijing fails to address USA demands. The United States has consistently sought concessions from China on intellectual property and technology, as well as tariffs on imports of USA goods.

The president has frequently criticized China for treating the U.S. The vice-president referenced China's activity in the South China Sea as well as "Chinese Communist Party interference in the politics of Western countries". He has often pointed to alleged currency manipulation, arguing that Beijing's policies hurt the USA financially.

And he warned the United States was prepared to escalate economic, diplomatic and political pressure on China unless it comes up with a concrete promise to change.

Chinese President Xi Jinping is also expected to make a pledge to change Beijing's economic, military, and political behavior during his meeting with US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Buenos Aires on November 30. "If there is a deal to be had with China it's a deal that has to be in America's interests...."

"Then so be it", Pence said.

Asked what would happen if Beijing fails to agree to act in Asia in a way that can avoid "a new Cold War" with the United States, Pence appeared to accept that such a reality could be inevitable.
