President Donald Trump stepped into a round of tough trade talks with China on Thursday after the White House confirmed a meeting between the U.S. president and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He.

The two world powers are taking part in a second series of trade negotiations that started Thursday. The initial talks were held in Beijing two weeks ago.

Speaking to reporters before his meeting with Liu, Trump repeated his strong dislike for previous deals between Washington and Beijing.

"The United States has been ripped off for many, many years by its bad trade deals. I don't blame China; I blame the leadership of this country from the past," Trump told reporters before a meeting with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.

"China has taken out hundreds of billions of dollars a year from the United States, and I explained to President Xi [Jinping] we can't do that anymore," Trump added.

The talks are aimed at "rebalancing the United States-China bilateral economic relationship," according to the White House. They are also aimed at avoiding a full-blown trade war after the two countries exchanged tariff threats in March.
