The news outlet, citing two administration officials with direct knowledge of the conversations, reported that the officials talked about having the summit there in March with the goal of ending a months-long trade war.
The officials told Axios that Mar-a-Lago was the "likely" location for the next meeting between Trump and Xi. But the two cautioned that nothing was was set in stone.
The report comes as a self-imposed March 1 deadline for the two countries to reach a trade agreement nears. Trump said last Thursday the he had no plans to meet with Xi before the deadline, adding that it was "probably too soon" for a meeting to happen in the next month.
His comments came after White House officials stated that the countries remained far apart on key trade disputes, a remark that prompted fears about trade tension flaring up once again.
