Trump is trying to tie Chinese behavior toward North Korea with trade incentives.
"We are prepared to do more", he said.
He did not elaborate on the progress or the problems.
Trump and other USA officials have repeatedly called on China to leverage its status as North Korea's biggest economic partner and source of food and fuel aid to force Pyongyang to abandon its nuclear weapons program. Absolutely nothing. But we have developed a friendship.
For Xi, who is entering a twice-a-decade Communist Party congress in the fall, the meeting with Trump was more about stabilizing the critical U.S.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says the USA and China have agreed to increase cooperation on trying to get North Korea's to abandon its nuclear weapons program. DPRK stands for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
In fact, the North justifies its nuclear weapons as a necessary deterrent to the USA military threat and has over the past weeks warned that the biggest-ever joint U.S. China accounted for nearly 70 percent of last year's $500 billion USA trade deficit. China is North Korea's most important ally and trading partner, and a significant source of its weapons, food and energy.
With Chinese President Xi Jinping safely out of the US and no longer President Donald Trump's guest, China's state-run media was free to denounce the missile strike on Syria, which the US President told Mr Xi about while they were finishing dinner.
By attacking Syria unilaterally, Trump sent a message to both China and Russian Federation: that neither will be able to shield its clients if they cross the line.
Trump's decision to strike Syria with 59 Tomahawk missiles - coming as Xi and Trump were eating spoonfuls of sorbet on Thursday night - quickly dominated the 24-hour news cycle.
But even as Trump basked in generally favorable reviews of the first direct USA military strike aimed at Assad, the president and his lieutenants seemed far less eager to engage knotty longer-term policy questions about the grinding multi-sided Syrian war, now in its seventh year.

Rex Tillerson says he's "seen no evidence" that Russian Federation is an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Tillerson said on CBS' Face the Nation that Russians were not targeted by the strikes.

Asked why the President chose to record the robocall , the official said the President had become "such a big issue in the race". Early vote tallies in the 6th congressional district Tuesday night immediately pushed Ossoff to the head of a crowded field.
China is making all-out efforts in fighting corruption, said Xi, who urged the US side to coordinate more closely with China in hunting for fugitives who have fled overseas and recovering illicit money.
But as lawmakers called on Trump to consult with Congress on any future military strikes and a longer-term strategy on Syria, Trump administration officials sent mixed signals on the scope of US involvement.
At her daily news briefing Friday, Hua reiterated China's support for a "political settlement" and said it was urgent to prevent any further deterioration of the situation in Syria.
The open agenda and the personal setting for the 24-hour summit are created to allow the leaders to freewheel and build a rapport, in what is the world's most important relationship.
The two leaders spent Friday in a series of working sessions.
US officials said the two sides agreed to increase cooperation on trying to get North Korea's to abandon its nuclear weapons program, and China acknowledged the need for more balanced trade with the U.S.
"This may be ambitious, but it's a big sea change in the pace of discussions", Ross said. But more importantly, I think it says a lot about the US power and preeminent leadership role. Trump strongly criticized China's trade policies and trade surplus over the United States throughout the presidential campaign and into the early days of his presidency, going so far as to sign an executive order to investigate the trade deficit with China last month.

In tone and results, the summit was similar to a 2013 meeting between Xi and President Barack Obama in Rancho Mirage, California, that also produced little by way of tangible announcements.
"Looking over Trump's remarks, he was able to say everything he wanted to and conveyed his thoughts clearly, without causing misunderstanding, to President Xi", Chun Yung-woo, a former presidential national security adviser and head of the Korean Peninsula Future Forum, told the JoongAng Ilbo on Sunday.
