U.S. President Donald Trump threatens to impose tariffs on all Chinese imports.
The U.S. President made the comments aboard Air Force One Friday saying he’s prepared to impose tariffs on another $267 billion in Chinese goods, in addition to the $200 billion tariffs that could be rolled out any time.
On Thursday, China’s Commerce Ministry said it will respond with tariffs on an additional $60 billion in U.S. goods.
The next round of tariffs could impact thousands of consumer goods.
