The Heat: US-China Trade War

The Heat

Beijing said it had no choice but to retaliate against new U.S. tariffs on its exports.

The United States announced some $200 billion worth of imports from China will be taxed at 10 percent, starting next week. That’s set to go up to 25 percent in January if there’s no resolution to this trade war. Washington has already threatened more tariffs in response to Beijing’s retaliatory action.
