Trump says United States under 'no pressure' for China trade deal

Trump greenlights tariffs on about $200 billion more in Chinese products – reports

It's unclear yet what specific sectors have been affected by the suspension, but it will likely include industries that Beijing has promised to open to foreign businesses, such as banking, securities, insurance and asset management, said Jacob Parker, vice-president for China operations of the USCBC.

Trump also said he put off challenging China more directly previous year because he needed its assistance during nuclear talks with North Korea, but he has recently accused China of trying to hinder those discussions. Exporters in the United States say their business in China has dried up since then.

The reported green light for the tariffs had an immediate effect on financial markets.

The Trump administration has reached out to China for a new round of trade talks as it prepares to activate punitive US tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods, two people familiar with the matter said Wednesday. Technology shares led declines, with Apple falling as much as 1.7 per cent.

The White House didn't immediately comment.

China's foreign ministry on Thursday said it welcomed the invitation from the USA side, led by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, for renewed dialogue on trade after low-level talks in Washington last month fizzled without results.

As this all unfolds, news comes that the USA has asked to restart trade talks with China.

Friday's news reports that Mr Trump has ordered the U.S. to proceed with further tariffs quoted administration sources.

Two-thirds of American companies that responded to a survey said they have suffered lost sales or lower profits due to that increase, two chambers of commerce reported Thursday.

If the United States imposed new levies on Chinese imports then Beijing "will not hesitate to take countermeasures against USA tariffs to safeguard China's interests", it added. The new round would be in addition to $50 billion in Chinese goods that already face a 25 percent duty.

According to many recent reports, Taiwanese companies are already beginning to shy away from the Chinese market because of the likelihood that their products manufactured in China will be targeted by the Trump administration. President Trump took to Twitter, seeming to undermine his own officials over an offer of talks with Beijing.

The comments come amid reports the two sides could resume talks to stave off a third round of USA tariffs.

U.S. stocks sank on the news.

He also made it clear he was ready to impose tariffs worth $200 billion on goods "very soon" if President Xin Jinping's government refused to back down.

It has become tricky to find additional products for duties that won't more obviously impact American consumers, according to two people.

The unpredictability around the trade fight is hampering investment decisions as investors need stability to make sound decisions, Beebe said.

Apple said last week the $200 billion round of tariffs could hit some of its most popular goods such as the Apple Watch and AirPods headphones.

Efforts to end the dispute have fizzled so far.
