Trump administration threatens China with $200 billion in additional tariffs

Source: USA TODAY

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump fired another shot in an ongoing trade war with China on Tuesday, as his administration released a list of $200 billion in Chinese goods subject to 10% tariffs.

"This is an appropriate response under the authority of Section 301 to obtain the elimination of China’s harmful industrial policies," said U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, claiming that Chinese trade policies represent a national security threat to the United States.

China, which has denied U.S. accusations of unfair trade policies, has retaliated against previous tariffs with levies on U.S. goods, and can be expected to do so again.

The proposed tariff list that President Trump ordered last month ranges from Chinese air conditioners to leather goods.

6. If "feck" has anything to do with...

Botox, collagen, or plastic surgery, she most certainly IS NOT "feckless". She's so full of feck it's coming out of her ears (if you could see her ears, that is). She's fecking ridiculous!

5. Trump is psychologically compelled to fight.

He has said he likes to fight... about anything. That is obvious.

We have observed over and over that if there is not something readily available to fight about he will create something.

He is very dangerous because he is not well, he is not emotionally/psychologically healthy. AND as president he has cataclysmic power.

Republican politicians who protect and defend him are unbelievably irresponsible.

7. China 'shocked' by US actions in trade dispute

Beijing described Washington's latest threat as "totally unacceptable," saying it would harm the world.

"The behaviour of the US is hurting China, hurting the world and hurting itself," a spokesperson for China's commerce ministry said in a statement.

The spokesperson also said the government would have to take the "necessary counter-measures".
