Trump raises tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods, prompting Chinese warning

Just after midnight, Washington pulled the trigger on an increase in punitive duties on $200 billion in Chinese imports, raising them to 25 percent from 10 percent.

Both nations are engaged in commercial combat over China's aggressive push to set up Chinese firms because world leaders in cutting-edge areas including robotics and electrical vehicles.

Donald Trump is making a high-stakes bet on his 2020 re-election with his decision to impose new tariffs on China: that the USA economy is strong enough to absorb an all-out trade war - and might even benefit.

Goods that left Chinese ports prior to the deadline of Friday won't be hit by the import taxes.

"The only problem is that they know I am going to win", Trump wrote on Twitter, ". and the deal will become far worse for them if it has to be negotiated in my second term.

The stipulations, which were unveiled to Chinese media on Saturday, came after President Donald Trump gave China one month to hammer out a new deal before facing a fresh tariff hike.

"I know of a big prominent company in Kentucky that said the tax cuts significantly helped them, but that the tariffs are nearly equal in punishing them", Paul said during an interview on ABC's "This Week".

Today, the Global Times - which does not speak for the government but is run by the state-owned People's Daily newspaper - said the United States had "seriously underestimated China's endurance". US President Donald Trump also ordered tariffs to be raised on all remaining US imports from China, which are valued at around $300 billion.

"Tariffs will make our Country MUCH STRONGER, not weaker", the president predicted in a tweet.

Representative Dan Kildee of MI said that after speaking with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Thursday he's "pleasantly surprised" Trump isn't settling for Chinese offers to buy more American soybeans and other goods without making structural changes in its economy.

In his interview Liu said both sides agreed to keep talking despite what he called "some temporary resistance and distractions, " and to hold future meetings in Beijing.

If trade talks continue to sour, investors should expect volatility to surge.

As the U.S. -China trade fight deepens, the two superpowers - one incumbent and one rising - are sizing each other up and deciding whether they can coexist. Further talks are possible, but there's no immediate plan for the next round, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.

George T. Conway III, husband of White House Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway, attends the 139th Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn of the White House April 17, 2017 in Washington, D.C.

During Trump's trade war, the Republic of Korea took a dispute over America's so-called "dumping" laws to the WTO while politicians in countries as diverse as India, Turkey, Germany and Israel have complained about Trump's approach to trade. The formation of the World Trade Organization and the forging of trade deals like the North American Free Trade Agreement reduced or eliminated tariffs. Economists in China estimate a similar impact.

Referring to his latest direction, Trump said that the process has begun to place additional Tariffs at 25% on the remaining 325 Billion Dollars.

In a statement, Chinese officials said the country "deeply regrets that it will have to take necessary countermeasures".

At the White House, Mr Trump said he had received "a lovely letter" from Chinese President Xi Jinping and would "probably speak to him by phone".
