Washington: President Donald Trump vowed today to revise a US trade deal with South Korea to secure more favourable terms, while also threatening retaliatory trade sanctions against China.

"The Korea deal was a disaster," Trump told reporters as he hosted a White House meeting on trade, vowing the United States would negotiate a "fair deal" or scrap it altogether.

Charging that the US steel and aluminium industries were being "decimated" by dumping, Trump said he was also mulling trade sanctions against China, and was "considering all options" including tariffs.
