Trump ups ante on China, threatens duties on nearly all its imports

"More broadly, tariffs will lead to higher USA consumer prices, lower overall US economic growth, and other unintended economic consequences".

Navarro said the administration would "love to have a fair relationship with China", the world's second-largest economy. But 2018 Chinese imports through July were up almost 9 per cent over the same period of 2017, according to US Census Bureau data.

The Trump administration has already imposed 25% tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods, meant to punish Beijing for alleged unfair trade practices and intellectual property theft. "That totally changes the equation".

The Trump administration is reportedly considering using an Obama-era executive order to slap new sanctions on Chinese entities using cyberattacks to steal US intellectual property.

The Trump administration hopes to curtail the theft of US technology and intellectual property by Beijing, which Navarro says is the catalyst behind China's economic growth.

U.S. president Donald Trump said Friday that he was prepared to roll out tariffs on yet another $267 billion worth of Chinese goods even before his earlier proposed tariffs have gone into effect, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Donald Trump has warned that he has a new tranche of tariffs covering virtually all Chinese goods entering the US ready to go, as Apple warned that the US-China trade war will make its products more expensive for American consumers.

White House Economic advisor Larry Kudlow told CNBC that talks between the US and China were ongoing.

While those numbers wouldn't derail the economy - Zandi forecasts that growth would reach 3 percent this year - "you'd start to feel it", Zandi said.

Trump said Friday that the timing of the tariffs on the $200bn worth of goods is not yet final.

China's commerce ministry vowed to retaliate if the U.S. took new trade measures against it. But 2018 imports from China through July were up almost 9% over the same period of 2017, according to US Census Bureau data.

"Canada has been ripping us off for a long time".

However, she seemed to have a different position than Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo on the relationship between the NAFTA talks and the United States steel and aluminum tariffs.

"So the idea would be to table a solution to these trade aggressions before signing", Guajardo said at a conference in Mexico City.
