U.S. Threatens to Impose Tariffs on $200 Billion Worth of Chinese Goods

HeadlineJul 11, 2018

The Trump administration has threatened to impose 10 percent tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods, including fish, textiles, handbags, chemicals, petroleum and other products. The threat comes after the Trump administration imposed tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods last week, prompting China to retaliate with tariffs against American products. This is a spokesperson from China’s foreign ministry.

Hua Chunying: “I would like to stress that the United States’ behavior is typical trade bullying. China will definitely make the necessary counterattack and firmly protect our legitimate rights and interests. I would also like to say, this is a fight between unilateralism and multilateralism, protectionism and free trade, might and rules. China stands in line with the international community on the correct side of history to protect the rules of the multilateral trade order together.”
