Trump threatens to slap $100 billion in additional tariffs on China—CNN 

 

President Donald Trump ratcheted up the trade war rhetoric with China on Thursday, saying he was considering another $100 billion in tariffs on the country.

 

"In light of China's unfair retaliation, I have instructed the [United States Trade Representative] to consider whether $100 billion of additional tariffs would be appropriate," the president said in a statement.

 

Earlier this week, the United States announced new tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods, claiming that China is stealing US intellectual property. China responded within hours by announcing $50 billion worth of tariffs on US goods.


The moves follow US tariffs that were imposed earlier this year on Chinese steel and aluminum, which also prompted a response from China.

 

The Chinese embassy in Washington did not immediately issue a response to Trump's proposed new round of tariffs.  – cnn.com
