China recorded a record trade surplus of $34.13 billion with the U.S. in September amid intense trade tensions between the world’s two largest economies.

The world’s two largest economies are locked in a bitter trade dispute, with U.S. President Donald Trump taking issue with his country’s massive trade deficit against China.

For January-September, China’s trade surplus with the United States was $225.79 billion, compared with about $196.01 billion in the same period last year, Reuters calculations showed.
