The Heat: US-China Trade War

The Heat

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.
