    Donald Trump Elected 45th US President (281)

    Official Beijing expressed willingness to cooperate with the United States under its new president, Donald Trump.

    BEIJING (Sputnik) — China is willing to expand cooperation with the United States, and establish a contact with US President-elect Donald Trump, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said.

    “We are willing to continue cooperation with US president Barack Obama’s administration to ensure the steady transition to the new US administration. At the same time, we are willing to maintain contacts with the Trump team, to constantly improve mutual understanding, expand cooperation,” Wang Yi said as quoted by foreign ministry’s website.

    Trump won in the US presidential election, despite expectations that his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton would come first. The Republican candidate secured more than the 270 electoral votes needed to win the US presidency. The inauguration will be held on January 20, 2017.

    During his campaign, Trump accused China of currency manipulations and proposed to raise the issue of the country's commitment to World Trade Organization rules. The billionaire also vowed to impose a 45-percent tariff on imports from China, blaming the cheap imports for the loss of jobs in the United States.
