US stocks closed higher, ahead of a long Memorial day weekend, after US President Donald Trump predicted a swift end to the ongoing trade war with China.
President Trump said on Thursday that Huawei Technologies could also be included in the trade deal, while at the same time calling the Chinese telecommunications giant "very dangerous."
However, no high-level talks have been scheduled since the last round of negotiations in Washington two weeks ago.
The Dow Jones rose 98.14 points, or 0.39%, to 25,588.61.
The S&P 500 gained 4.14 points, or 0.15%, to 2,826.38.
And the Nasdaq Composite added 8.73 points, or 0.11%, to 7,637.01.
