Washington DC [United States], April 6 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump has ordered his administration to consider tariffs on an additional 100 billion dollars in Chinese imports escalating the trade tiff between the two countries.
"In light of China's unfair retaliation, I have instructed the USTR to consider whether $100 billion of additional tariffs would be appropriate under section 301 and, if so, to identify the products upon which to impose such tariffs," Xinhua reported President Trump, as saying, in a statement issued by the White House.
China's Ministry of Commerce said that it planned to slap 25 percent levies on a range of U.S. goods worth about USD 50 billion.
None of the tariffs have yet to come into effect. (ANI)
