President Donald Trump said the partial U.S.-China trade deal may lead to as much as $20 billion in sales of Boeing Co. airplanes, in addition to spurring billion of dollars in purchases of agricultural goods.

“Other aspects of the deal are also great -- technology, financial services, 16-20 Billion in Boeing Planes etc,” Trump tweeted Saturday without any specifics about the aircraft portion. A spokesman for Boeing declined to comment.
