Donald Trump's China Tariffs Don't Apply to Ivanka

China urges domestic firms to boost non-American imports as trade war with US escalates

President Trump's fresh tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese goods set the stage for price increases hitting American companies and consumers.

Essentially, a trade war is a back-and-forth dispute wherein a country imposes tariffs on certain imports in order to restrict trade, reports CNN.

A business group says European companies that export from China are changing the global flow of their goods to avoid higher American tariffs in a sign of the spreading impact of the U.S.

The USDA didn't immediately reply to an email seeking comment on the shipment.

China has stepped up action against some US goods by announcing anti-dumping duties on raw materials used in making optical fibers.

USA tariffs are the first stage in levies threatened by the Trump administration on a total of $450 billion worth of Chinese goods.

Despite her father's rallying cry to "buy American and hire American", 100% of Ivanka Trump's fashion products were made overseas-at least until early 2017.

Customs at the port of Dalian, where the ship Peak Pegasus was now anchored carrying 70,000 tonnes of US soybeans, have updated their tariffs for the USA goods on Beijing's list to the higher levels, according to a soymeal buyer briefed by a customs official at the port.

It is unclear whether the soybean cargo, which did not arrive until after the penalties took effect, will pay the 25 percent higher tariff.
