U.S. trade officials issued a list Tuesday of $300 billion more of Chinese goods targeted for possible tariff increases. The list “covers essentially all products” exported from China that haven’t already been hit with tariff increases, the U.S. Trade Representative’s office said. It includes laptop computers, saw blades, turbine parts, tuna, and garlic.
The United States and China appear locked in a battle of wills after trade talks hit a setback and President Donald Trump announced new duties on Chinese imports last week. China responded with more tariffs of its own Monday.
