A spokesperson for China’s foreign ministry said Beijing was looking forward to working with President Trump.

”We will work with the new US president to ensure the steady and sound development of bilateral relations so as to benefit the people in both countries as well as around the world,” Lu Kang told reporters in the Chinese capital.

Mr Kang said any future disputes over trade could be settled ”in a responsible manner”.

He addressed the fears of the Chinese people over the possibility of Trump introducing protectionist trade laws by reiterating that ”China and US trade cooperation has benefited the US people rather than hurting their interests.”
