NEW YORK (AP) Stocks closed broadly lower Tuesday after President Donald Trump indicated he was in no hurry to make a trade deal with China.
Technology companies, which do a lot of business with China, stocks led the declines. Intel lost 2.8%.
Trump said he had "no deadline" for making a deal, suggesting there may not be an agreement this year, as previously hoped.
Investors were also disappointed that the U.S. proposed tariffs on French goods, a day after announcing taxes on steel and aluminum imports from Chile and Argentina.
