China raises tariffs on United States imports in trade war

Wallace Asks Kudlow 'Are You Reading Upside Down'

The tweets come after the US last week began increasing tariffs from 10 percent to 25 percent on $200 billion of Chinese goods.

"The lack of resolution in the latest U.S".

China said it would impose higher tariffs on a range of U.S. goods, striking back in its trade war with Washington shortly after U.S. President Donald Trump warned it not to retaliate in the long-running trade dispute between the world's two biggest economies. Even as his administration was busy slapping a hefty 25 per cent tax on $250 billion of Chinese imports last week, President Trump was tweeting about the strength of his relationship with China's President Xi and promising that "conversations into the future will continue".

"When the time is right we will make a deal with China".

Investors' trade war fears have clearly intensified - Bank of America Merrill Lynch's monthly survey showed equity allocations falling sharply in May and a record number of funds saying they were hedged against a sharp stock market fall. The market may need to drop at least 10% before Mr. Trump signals a willingness to strike a deal at the G20 Summit in late June, he added. U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said Friday that Trump ordered the U.S.to begin the process of imposing increased tariffs on the $300 billion of Chinese exports not affected by last week's hike. It said a June 17 hearing would be held before Washington decides how to proceed.

"Make your product at home in the US and there is no Tariff".

It includes laptop computers, saw blades, turbine parts, tuna and garlic.

"No", says Robert Kudrle, an global trade expert at the University of Minnesota.




He also warned: "There will be nobody left in China to do business with". That suggested official censors might have blocked earlier comments but started allowing those that favor Beijing to deflect potential criticism of President Xi Jinping's government. Evidence reveals USA consumers and businesses are the ones paying the cost of the president's trade war with China.

"There is nothing to be afraid of", said the party newspaper People's Daily. "Because our hearts are too soft!" Japan's Nikkei 225 index lost 0.6% to 21,216.28 and the S&P ASX 200 declined 0.2% to 6,297.40. Hong Kong, Australia and Taiwan fell. Details of what the duties were before the increases were unclear. On Monday, prospects of a cease fire appeared slim when Trump announced he was preparing to expand US tariffs to cover all $540 billion in Chinese imports. He told reporters, "I have not made that decision yet".

Negotiations on a new trade deal appeared to be going well, until Trump accused Beijing of going back on previous commitments.

"You had a great deal, nearly completed, & you backed out!"

Also, both countries have indicated more talks are likely. But markets there are still higher than analysts had predicted. But he added that "both sides will suffer on this".

Trump has repeatedly said that the trade structure between the two countries is imbalanced, and has sought to rectify that. In 2016, the average tariff was 1.6%. Before voicing support for Trump's 2020 election campaign, American citizens should think twice - who on earth is paying for their president's tariffs? That has sent shockwaves through other Asian economies that supply Chinese factories.

That move underscored worries about the economic impact of a trade war - a sustained inversion of that part of the yield curve has preceded every US recession in the past 50 years.
