U.S. and Chinese trade negotiators are "laying the groundwork" to delay new tariffs that were set to go into force on Dec. 15, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The report, which quotes unnamed officials on both sides, said the two countries are haggling over how to get China to commit to massive purchases of U.S. farm products.
