China plans tariffs after latest United States trade threat

Here's Why Trump Is Hiking Chinese Tariffs To 25%

Here's Why Trump Is Hiking Chinese Tariffs To 25%

Beijing's plans for tariffs on $60 billion of USA goods includes an additional 5 percent in duty on about 600 kinds of US products, including planes and computers; another 10 percent on nearly 1,000 products, including wigs and textiles; an extra 20 percent on more than 1,000 items, including some chemicals, cookers and paper; and an additional 25 percent on over 2,400 products such as meat, wheat, wine and liquefied natural gas. Tariffs of 2,3 percent hardly represent a tariff war, let alone a trade war.

Beijing fought back with matching tariffs on the same amount of USA exports to China. Considering much of Trump's base is located in states that have been heavily impacted by retaliatory tariffs from China and other countries, the GOP's $12 billion emergency aid plan's end goal is maintaining stability until November midterms.

Mid-July, Trump threatened $500 billion in tariffs on China imports, escalating his prior threat to impose $200 billion on China.

On the contrary, the national debt has continued to rise under Trump, and his tariffs have resulted in retaliatory measures from other countries.

The deficits between the United States and Trump's main trade adversaries are also growing.

Trump portrays the tariffs as a tax on foreigners, but the reality is that tariffs are taxes on USA companies and consumers.

Single participants receive up to $16,989 a year while couples receive up to $24,027, less 50 per cent of any earned income. How did the program work? "What we have seen is that the program is not doing what it was meant to do", Ms.

Liang stressed that United States consumers would ultimately pay the price for Trump's irrational trade policies, pointing out that the United States imports its nitrosamines, an industrial raw material, from China.

Liu said China's move is aiming to offset potential negative influences on domestic economic growth and stabilize market sentiment.

In the larger picture, USA agriculture has been dealt a heavy blow from the trade war. China continues to move forward while for USA farmers, the trade war has represented a major step backwards. It did not specify what they might be, but could include increased checks on U.S. products, delays in approvals for United States firms seeking licenses and other business requirements.

President Trump vowed Saturday to continue imposing tariffs as a central part of his economic agenda and called his critics "fools", pivoting sharply away from the free-trade message that senior advisers had tried to erect in recent weeks.

The dispute is part of broader US complaints about global trading conditions that have prompted Trump to raise duties on steel, aluminum, washing machines or solar panels from Canada, Europe, Japan and South Korea.

The odds of a full-blown trade war are low, but they just got a little bit higher.

Trump admits to misconduct in Trump Tower meeting
At the time , Trump and his White House had falsely claimed that he had only offered his input into the crafting of the statement. In June 2016, Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and campaign chairman Paul Manafort met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

The so-called trade war with NAFTA and Europe is still phony.

The US and China: poles apart?

The auto industry seems to have been the most affected so far, with three major automakers recently warning that changes to trade policies are hurting performance. Last year, China imported about $130 billion of U.S. goods.

Kudlow added: "We will not let China steal our technology".

The US wants concessions in three areas from China: more access to China markets by US banks and multinational corporations, including 51 percent and then 100 percent US corporate ownership of their operations there.

These represent not only the source of industries of the future, but threaten a quantum leap in China military capabilities. The "best news", he said, was that "we are coming together with the European Union to make a deal with them".
