In a combative series of tweets Trump, whose Republicans fear losing control of both houses of Congress in November, accused China of trying to broaden its retaliation into the electoral arena. It's an especially sensitive issue given the political maelstrom over alleged Russian meddling in the real estate tycoon's surprise 2016 presidential victory.
"China has openly stated that they are actively trying to impact and change our election by attacking our farmers, ranchers and industrial workers due to their loyalty to me", Trump said on Twitter. However, because of the trade imbalance between the United States and China, Beijing won't be able to continue matching Trump's tariffs.

China's retaliatory tariffs, ranging from 5 per cent to 10 per cent on more than 5,000 items including items ranging from meat to wheat and textiles, will take effect on Sept 24, China's Ministry of Finance said in a statement posted on its website.
It has signalled it might target products manufactured in China that are critical to the supply chains of United States technology and manufacturing companies; products relatively low in value but not easily or readily available elsewhere.
Trump believes that his tearing up of the global trade rulebook is long overdue. "As such this is a real ratcheting up of trade tensions that certainly heightens the risks for global and United States growth".
"We have been very clear about the type of changes that need to be made, and we have given China every opportunity to treat us more fairly". "Once again, I urge China's leaders to take swift action to end their country's unfair trade practices".
The newest round of tariffs on Chinese imports signals that Trump has declared trade war on China, writes Oxford Economics chief US economist Gregory Daco in a Tuesday research note.
