"I'm sure he will be deeply involved", Kudlow said on a call with reporters.
While Mnuchin said the president reserves the right to escalate tariffs should negotiations not pan out as planned, he cast the weekend's talks as a breakthrough in the administration's efforts to check China and said the discussion included everything from purchasing more USA goods to intellectual property, to currency manipulation.
White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Monday that the United States and China are "pretty close" to an agreement on stopping IP theft, though he didn't give any details on the progress.

President Donald Trump suggested Tuesday that his 90-day deadline for completing trade talks with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping could be extended - while also threatening to ratchet up tariffs if he isn't happy. The tariff had been previously set at 15%, but was ratcheted it up to 40% as part of a series of retaliatory measures taken by China against the US.
"China is supposed to start buying Agricultural product and more immediately", Trump wrote. The Trump administration has thus far applied tariffs to $253 billion worth of Chinese goods, and has threatened to apply 25 percent tariffs to another $267 billion worth of Chinese merchandise if this round of talks are unsuccessful.
Trump nevertheless praised himself for the dinner, and abandoned nuance in claiming on Twitter that China had agreed to immediately buy more USA farm products, in addition to dropping vehicle tariffs. "President Trump's economically illiterate trade commentary won't help - and is driving American allies to ramp up their own trade barriers to retaliate".
That means the death penalty, by the way, but anyhow, here's what China's Foreign Ministry said, again more vaguely: "China has made a decision to list all the fentanyl-like substances as controlled substances and start working to adjust related regulations". Trump said in the Twitter post that Lighthizer would work closely with Mnuchin, Kudlow and trade adviser Peter Navarro.
There was confusion over China's "agreement" to immediately buy large volumes of USA goods, particularly agricultural commodities. "It will always be the best way to max out our economic power", he said. "But as he found out with Mexico, Canada and now China, trade is more than the sum of goods and services exchanged between nations".
No one's quite sure how Trump plans to get his way (and, in turn, pass on the cost of these tariffs to the USA people), but what's also grabbing attention is how Trump phrased one of his tweets.
The negotiations for a final agreement have already begun, Kudlow said.
