The next 15% tariff increase on $156 billion worth of Chinese imports is still scheduled to kick in on December 15, Fox Business' Edward Lawrence reported on Friday, citing a senior White House official.

However, the official reportedly cautioned, if Washington and Beijing manage to smooth out the differences and seal the phase one deal by December 15, the decision on additional levies might change.

Meanwhile, President Trump continues to claim that the deal is "coming along very well."
