Political messaging in the video is less than subtle, with the "bean" character telling viewers that China imports one third of its soybeans from the United States, which amounts to 62 percent of the crop exported by American farmers.

Mr Trump complained that the U.S. was "being taken advantage of" on a number of fronts, including trade and monetary policy.

Meanwhile, GERMAN Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday said that Europe would apply counter-measures if the U.S. imposed tariffs on European cars.

"I don't want them to be scared", he told CNBC.

The U.S. dollar fell against major currencies on Friday on Trumps threat to impose more import tariffs and his repetition of complaints about rising interest rates and the strength of the U.S. dollar. President Xi Jingping "cannot lose face with his own people by giving in to the United States", Dollar said.

"The (yuan's) slide against the U.S. dollar will substantially cushion the impact on Chinese exporters from the planned next round of United States tariffs", IHS Markit's chief Asia economist Rajiv Biswas told AFP news agency.

The administration says it wants China to end the theft of intellectual property from USA companies and curb policies that require American and other foreign businesses to hand over technology in exchange for access to the Chinese market.

Trump has placed tariffs on everything from steel to chicken incubators.

"But it could be that all we end up with is a lot of tariffs globally and a lot of other types of protectionism globally".

Washington has since threatened tariffs on another $200 billion in Chinese exports, prompting Beijing to vow further retaliation. In a 1990 Playboy interview, Trump was asked about his first action if he ever became president. Mr Trump responded that he was. "I'm doing this to do the right thing for our country".

Donald Trump has lashed out at China and the European Union for allegedly "manipulating" their currencies against a bullish US Dollar.

China has pledged to retaliate against USA tariffs in "equal scale and equal strength". The president has already imposed tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese goods, and Beijing has retaliated with tariffs on an equal amount of American exports.
