Trump readies tariffs on another $US200m of Chinese goods

The United States late Tuesday listed the $200 billion in Chinese export goods that could be hit with tariffs of 10 percent as soon as September, escalating the trade war between the world's two largest economies. But China only bought about $135 billion in US goods past year, meaning it will run out of American products to tax before it matches Trump's latest move. The American announcement came Tuesday - days after the USA began adding 25 percent tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese goods.
It also includes consumer goods ranging from auto tires, furniture, wood products, handbags and suitcases, to dog and cat food, baseball gloves, carpets, doors, bicycles, skis, golf bags, toilet paper and beauty products. But it could interfere with American automakers and retailers who see China as a key market by regulating import licenses or investigating US firms for tax, environmental, and antitrust concerns, according to the Associated Press.
The US Chamber of Commerce, which has supported Trump's tax cuts and efforts to reduce regulation of businesses, also criticised the administration's move. That came four days after Washington added 25% duties on 34 billion dollars (£25 billion) of Chinese goods, with Beijing responding by increasing taxes on the same amount of American imports.
China slammed the latest USA tariff threat as a "totally unacceptable" escalation of their trade battle and vowed Wednesday to protect its "core interests".
Administration officials said a two-month process would allow the public to comment on the proposed tariffs before the list is finalised.

"Trump's escalation of trade hostilities makes it increasingly hard to envision an exit path from an all-out trade war". "Our worldwide trade is extremely important and we have to start off on the right track and I'm not sure we are right now", he said.
"China has no option but to fight fire with fire. Imposing taxes on another $200 billion worth of products will raise the costs of everyday goods for American families". As Trump put it back in June (via Twitter): "China apparently has no intention of changing its unfair practices related to the acquisition of American intellectual property and technology".
