LONDON—President Trump suggested a trade war with China could drag out past the 2020 election and stoked a tariff spat with France during a visit to Europe for a NATO summit.

Mr. Trump said he had “no deadline” to conclude a trade deal with China, adding that “in some ways I like the idea of waiting until after the election,” during a meeting with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg on Tuesday in London.
