We're a little more than a week away from the U.S. and China sitting down to talk trade.
But, before we even get to the talks, there were reports on Friday that the U.S. was considering blocking Chinese companies from listing on U.S. exchanges.
A report from Bloomberg on Friday said the White House was considering limiting investment in China, reigniting trade tensions between the world's two largest economies.
However, the U.S. is now denying those reports.
"The administration is not contemplating blocking Chinese companies from listing shares on U.S. stock exchanges at this time," Treasury spokeswoman Monica Crowley said in an emailed statement to Bloomberg.
In fact, on CNBC, White House trade representative Peter Navarro called the reports "fake news."
