Mr Calhoun said he is "confident in the future" of the firm, telling staff his "primary focus" will be returning the 737 Max to the skies.
Boeing stopped production of the 737 MAX altogether this month as it is not known when the jet will get clearance to fly again.
The wording of the agreement requires China to import at least $32.9 billion more in USA manufactured goods than in 2017, after which trade was all but frozen. "We've got to get that one moving fast and it's going to be better than ever I think".
Boeing reversed losses after the release of the data, which also showed a surge in deliveries of satellites and military aircraft to 231 units from 98 a year earlier.
He added that Boeing would "continue to monitor and inform the U.S". Such a deal could ease pressure on the 787 Dreamliner, which has suffered from a broad downturn in demand for large jets, forcing Boeing to trim production late previous year.
The net tally for the year, reported today, is -87 - which Boeing says is the first time in at least 20 years that the number has fallen below zero.
Amid its 737 MAX crisis, Boeing Commercial Airplanes is reporting a negative number for net orders in 2019, meaning that it booked more cancellations than new orders over the course of the past year.
"Moreover, this will stand well with the expected increase [in] tourism activity in conjunction with the Visit Malaysia Year 2020", it said.
Trump said he had no doubt that Boeing's new chief executive officer David Calhoun, would be able to turn things around.
"It's not your fault".
"You'll straighten it out quickly please?"
"In view of the production stoppage and the delayed return to service of the 737-MAX, MAB has suspended the delivery of our orders which are due in 2020". Including an accounting rule that restricts the revenue United States companies book from deals at risk of not materialising, the Boeing tally shrank to negative 87 orders for the year.
