The President renewed his invitation to Xi on the sidelines of the APEC leaders' meeting in Lima, Peru last November 2016. Beijing had hoped to have the meat of the deal done by the end of this year, but the timetable has now slipped to 2019.

Every year there are stories of Black Friday gone wrong: people being trampled in mad rushes to get the last cheap PS4, getting stuck in a crowded Wal Mart for hours or even people getting dehydrated while camped out waiting for a store to open.

A high school senior, who made a decision to get involved in Black Friday for the first time, described how tires were squealing in the carpark as people tried to flee.

Brookfield Properties Spokeswoman Lindsay Kahn tells ABC's WNEP News, "We are working closely with the Hoover Police Department and are grateful for their swift action to contain the situation".

"We were fortunate that that officer was there, where he needed to be", said Captain Rector.
