Donald Trump on Trade 'Squabble' with China: 'We Always Win'

The president also ordered tariffs to be raised on all remaining USA imports from China, which are valued at around $300 billion. "You can also buy from a non-Tariffed country instead of China".

On Friday, Trump had issued orders for the tariff increase, asserting that China "broke the deal" by reneging on earlier commitments made during negotiations.

On Monday, he said his administration would provide about US$15 billion (S$20.5 billion) in aid to farmers whose products were targeted by Chinese tariffs.

Shares in Europe and NY rebounded yesterday as President Trump struck a more optimistic tone about the prospect of a trade deal between the United States and China.

China announced it will raise the rate of tariffs imposed on US$60 billion worth of imports from the United States from June 1 onward.

The U.S. Trade Representative's Office said that there will be a public hearing on June 17 to discuss its new list of 3,805 product categories that, if approved, could be affected by tariffs as high as 25%.

At the same time, China is vowing not to succumb to such pressure. "They have not been fair traders".

The statement said China hopes that the United States will return to bilateral economic and trade consultations, to meet each other halfway and strive to reach a mutually beneficial and win-win agreement.

"The question is what's the smartest, most effective way to do it", Van Hollen said. "I think it's working out very well". Obviously, Americans and American consumers are paying more and more by the day. It's not clear to me that the president's policies are addressing that, but we'll see.

Trump's reality with regard to China, which he explained to reporters at the White House Tuesday, might be more believable if China were the only nation with which Trump was tangling. "I'm not saying that tariffs can't be part of something, but they cannot be the only tool in your tool box".

However, Trump recently alleged that China had backed out from the deal.

"It includes a mounting arms race and includes diplomatic competition around the world, with China operating in Latin America and Venezuela and so forth, Middle East, in places where we've traditionally seen ourselves as dominant", Lampton said.
