WASHINGTON—U.S. and Chinese representatives are meeting Thursday to try to save sinking trade negotiations before a planned tariff hike Friday on $200 billion in Chinese goods. President Donald Trump said Wednesday night that the two sides expected a positive outcome from the talks until recently, when “China broke the deal” by attempting to renegotiate key points. Tariffs will climb from 10 percent to 25 percent at 12:01 a.m. Friday if the trade envoys don’t make progress at their meeting Thursday.
