Even before he announced an increase Friday, J.P. Morgan had estimated that Trump's tariffs would cost the average household roughly $1,000 a year if he proceeded with his threats.
The comments made by China's Ministry of Commerce came after the U.S. President Donald Trump announced on Friday that Washington will impose an additional 5% duty the Chinese goods, hours after Beijing announced its latest retaliatory tariffs on about $75 billion worth of U.S. goods, in the latest tit-for-tat moves in their bilateral trade dispute.

"We don't need China and, frankly, would be far. better off without them", Trump said.
It was unclear under what authority Trump could demand that private companies alter their production.
Beijing also announced it would reimpose a 25% tariff on United States autos and a 5% tariff on auto parts, also starting Dec 15. China had lifted those tariffs earlier this year as a goodwill measure while trade talks were underway. Beijing had planned those tariff hikes past year but temporarily dropped them to keep the talks going.
