WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump signaled Tuesday that he opposes efforts to block the sale of jet engines to China. Trump's tweets appeared intended to thwart a proposal from within his own administration to limit exports of engines jointly produced by General Electric and a French company.

Trump’s tweets followed a report in The Wall Street Journal that his administration was weighing a ban on shipments to China of a jet engine produced jointly by GE and the French company Safran SA.

The Commerce Department declined to comment. The White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
