WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday said he would raise the issue of detained Canadians being held by China as part of the ongoing spat involving China’s Huawei Technologies Co Ltd when he meets with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Trump, who spoke to reporters at the White House as he prepared to hold talks with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, is scheduled to meet with Xi at the G20 summit in Japan next week.
