  • China defiant as Trump adviser admits US consumers pay tariffs

But after weeks of optimistic statements by Trump and members of his administration about how trade talks were progressing, Trump abruptly escalated tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods last week and opened the door to even more - prompting Beijing to hit back Monday by raising the tariff rate on $60 billion of U.S. items.

China's announcement Monday said tariff increases are going ahead based on a list of $60 billion of US goods Beijing released in August.

'Their [sic] is no reason for the U.S. Consumer to pay the Tariffs, which take effect on China today, ' he wrote.

Following the Chinese announcement, stocks on Wall Street fell in pre-market trading, pointing to big losses once trading begins as investors react to the latest round of tit-for-tat tariffs.

The plunging of the Dow is in response to increasing tensions between Washington and Beijing.

Elsewhere, European shares dropped more than 1% after the European Union said it was finalizing a list of US goods to target in the event Trump imposes levies on auto imports. "But I have a feeling it's going to be very successful", Trump said.

"It's clear that there is a lot of nervousness around the U.S".

The S&P 500 on Friday racked up its worst weekly decline since December, as Washington raised tariffs on Chinese goods worth $200 billion to 25 per cent from 10 per cent. And slower US economic growth could even hurt domestically focused companies.

"We support the administration's efforts to deliver a meaningful trade agreement that levels the playing field for American businesses and workers", Matthew Shay, president and CEO of the National Retail Federation, said in a statement. But China has taken so advantage of the US for so many years, that they are way ahead (Our Presidents did not do the job).

The sell-off that sank United States stocks and global commodities spilled into Asia on Tuesday (May 14) after China retaliated with higher tariffs on a range of American goods.

USA officials over the weekend sought promises of concrete changes to Chinese law and Beijing said it would not swallow any "bitter fruit" that harmed its interests. Not only has the USA not provoked China over trade, but Washington is also decades late in trying to level the trade playing field.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told CNBC the talks were ongoing and he was working on when to travel to Beijing.

The president insisted over the weekend that a robust 3.2 per cent growth in the American GDP is tied to his aggressive tariff policy, and suggested Monday that China has far more to lose than the U.S.

White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow warned on Sunday that there could be negative consequences to Trump's trade war, admitting that "both sides will suffer on this" while at the same time claiming that the overall economic impact would not be significant, because the economy is "in terrific shape". Remember, they broke the deal with us and tried to renegotiate. "It is no big deal". "In addition to short-term relief, we ask that Congress adopt meaningful, long-term solutions that will ensure the economic viability of family farm agriculture".

Trump's meeting with Xi will most likely focus on trade.
