- But behind the scenes, the president has been pressing Mr. Lighthizer to finish a deal, people familiar with the discussions said.
- "When can you get a deal done?" Mr. Trump asked the trade representative in a March 12 exchange, these people said. "Two or three weeks," Mr. Lighthizer replied. Earlier in the day, Mr. Lighthizer had told the Senate Finance Committee, "Our hope is we are in the final weeks of an agreement."
