Asian markets are seeing red on Wednesday after US President Trump sounded skeptical over progress in trade talks between the US and China. On Tuesday, Trump said that he was ‘not really’ satisfied with the negotiations. Trump’s comments have confused the markets, as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin declared on the weekend that the trade spat was ‘on hold.’ Investor risk appetite has also waned as there is uncertainty whether North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will meet with President Trump next month.
