A new round of proposed Trump tariffs would hit United States consumers

Beijing

Beijing

On Friday, Washington had imposed additional 25 percent tariffs on $34bn of Chinese imports, prompting Beijing to immediately respond with proportionate tariffs on $34bn American goods including seafood and soybeans.

USA officials on Tuesday issued a list of thousands of Chinese goods to be hit with the new tariffs.

In June, Trump instructed Lighthizer to prepare $200 billion worth of Chinese goods for additional tariffs that will be enforced if Beijing imposed retaliatory penalties on USA -made products.

Experts have said that the outlook of the trade war depends on how China responds to the tariffs on its imports. In addition, the National Association of Manufacturers said this round would make USA manufacturers less competitive. The White House needs Beijing to pressure North Korea to denuclearize and would have more leverage over China to change its policies if it joined forces with the European Union and others. "Unfortunately, China has not changed its behavior - behavior that puts the future of the US economy at risk".

The Commerce Ministry on Wednesday gave no details, but Beijing responded to last week's U.S. tariff hike on $34 billion of imports from China by increasing its own duties on the same amount of American goods.

Most of the steel used in the United States comes from countries like China, Mexico and Canada - countries all now in a trade feud with the U.S.

However, a move by China against U.S. multi-nationals "could pose a far greater threat to the index in time", Jones said. "This is totally unacceptable", the statement said.

Trump argued the original deal from 2012 was lopsided in Seoul's favor, but has also clouded the issue by appearing to link trade concessions to progress in his separate track of talks with nuclear-armed North Korea.

China's compliance with WTO guidelines lies at the heart of the conflict, notably over Beijing's alleged state support for purportedly private companies. The U.S. last month agreed to lift the measures after ZTE pays a record fine and consents to management changes. "Something as simple as ball bearings - the prices are going up", said University of Denver Professor John Holcomb.

The game ended with England down to 10 players and out of substitutes. "You've brought belief and the love of football back". But despite the heartbreak, they and manager Gareth Southgate have reconnected many people with the national team .

"When exposing and criticizing American words and actions, be careful not to link it to Trump and instead to aim it at the US government", a memo based on verbal instructions from government officials reads.

- Canada and Mexico - Canada and Mexico, members of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with the United States, have not been spared the Washington offensive on steel and aluminum and have imposed their own counter-tariffs on U.S. goods.

"Other countries' trade barriers and tariffs have been destroying their businesses".

One senior European official commented that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members are preparing for a worst-case scenario should Mr Trump repeat his threat to end or curtail defence cooperation, with allies not on track to hit their defence funding target of 2% of GDP by 2024. It's a potential effect of a new round of tariffs the Trump administration is proposing to slap on Chinese imports as soon as September.

Orrin Hatch, the Republican Senate Finance Chairman, condemned the move as "reckless" and not "targeted", while USA stock index futures fell in early Asian trading.

The U.S. government said the new tariffs are in response to Beijing's June 15 tariffs on $50 billion in U.S. exports, which were themselves in retaliation for President Trump's initial tariffs against China.

"If you are Trump, you basically want to go after China only after you make sure that NAFTA is a go".

As well, the American Chemistry Council urged President Donald Trump to "bring an end to this unnecessary trade war".
