Another $267B China tariffs ready to go after $200 already announced

China Threatens Retaliation if President Trump's New $200 Billion Tariffs Go Ahead

China has announced a $60 billion list of American products targeted for retaliation. "That changes the equation".

Those potential tariffs would come on top of tariffs Trump has said he's poised to slap on $200 billion worth of goods from China - everything from handbags to bicycle tires.

Trump did not indicate whether the office of the US Trade Representative (USTR) had reached a decision regarding the rate of taxation of the latest round of tariffs, originally proposed at 10 per cent.

"China will have to take necessary countermeasures if the USA side ignores the opposition of the overwhelming major of its enterprises and adopts new tariff measures", Commerce Ministry spokesman Gao Feng said.

The US has already imposed tariffs on $50bn in Chinese products, and Beijing has punched back with tariffs on $50bn in American goods.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to the press aboard Air Force One on September 7, 2018.

Mueller will accept Trump's written responses as first step
On Tuesday, the President called the Mueller investigation "illegal" in an interview with the Daily Caller. Trump: "There were, I mean tremendous conflicts here, you know the conflicts, you've heard the conflicts".

Trump is getting a last-minute earful from prominent technology companies and retailers as he considers whether to follow through with his plan to ratchet up tariffs on Chinese exports.

The administration could decide to begin taxing the imports equal to almost 40pc of all the goods China sold the United States past year after a public comment period ends Thursday. But 2018 Chinese imports through July were up almost 9 per cent over the same period of 2017, according to US Census Bureau data. Trump said earlier Friday that his administration could "very soon" impose those tariffs. "These are taxes and they're going to find their way into the pocket book of folks around the country", French said.

"Our concern with these tariffs is that the USA will be hardest hit, and that will result in lower U.S. growth and competitiveness and higher prices for United States consumers", the company said.

Mr. Trump claims that China's trade policies are unfair, including the widespread practice of requiring foreign companies operating there to share intellectual property. Those talks will continue to go on.

Specifically, Kudlow said, the United States was seeking "zero tariffs, zero non-tariff barriers, zero subsidies, stop the IP theft, stop the technology transfer, allow Americans to own their own companies".

'Those have been our asks for many months and so far those asks have not been satisfied, ' he said. "However, hope springs eternal".
