U.S. President Donald Trump said in an interview with Fox Business News that forcing Chinese companies to follow U.S. accounting norms would likely push them to list in non-U.S. exchanges. In the interview, recorded Wednesday and aired on Thursday, the President said his administration was looking at the accounting issue "very strongly" while also bringing up what he called a "problem."

"Let's say we do that, right?" Trump said of requiring the companies to use U.S. accounting standards. "So what are they going to do? They're going to move their listing to London or someplace else," he said.

The issue comes after an independent board charged with overseeing billions in federal retirement dollars was pressured by the White House to indefinitely delay plans to invest in an international stock index that includes some Chinese companies.
