President Trump on Monday threatened to immediately impose tariffs on $300 billion in Chinese goods if Chinese President Xi Jinping does not appear at this month’s Group of 20 (G-20) summit.

Asked during a CNBC interview if the new tariffs would take effect if Xi does not attend the gathering of world leaders in Osaka, Japan, Trump responded, “Yes, it would.” Trump said he would be “surprised” if Xi did not attend because the two leaders are expected to meet to discuss the U.S.-China trade dispute.

“He’s actually an incredible guy. He’s a great man. He’s very strong and very smart, but he’s for China and I’m for the United States,” the president said during a phone interview with the cable business news channel.

Trump has threatened to slap tariffs on an additional $300 billion in Chinese imports if the two countries do not reach a deal soon to end their long-running trade dispute.
