However, he added, "we can do so through means other than blanket tariffs".

The chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce in China warned the Trump administration might be underestimating China's resolve to fight back.
"There seem to be domestic political pressures that are working against the perception of US companies receiving benefits" during trade disputes, Parker told the South China Morning Post. "But that scenario risks underestimating China's capability to continue meeting fire with fire".
