China Warns on US Trade Deals If Trump Raises Import Tariffs

China urges U.S. to make 'wise choice' on trade tariffs

China urges U.S. to make 'wise choice' on trade tariffs

The White House has said it's proceeding with plans to impose duties on $50 billion of Chinese goods, after weeks of discussions between the USA and China yielded little progress on a trade deal.

Trump has convened a meeting at the White House on Thursday to talk with his trade team about whether to move forward with tariffs on Chinese goods, according to two people familiar with the plans.

It remains unclear exactly which "war games" Trump is intending to end, at present, the US and South Korea hold numerous military exercises several times a year.

President Donald Trump is expected to impose tariffs on Chinese goods as soon as Friday or next week, according to two sources briefed on internal deliberations, a move that is sure to further inflame tensions and spark nearly immediate retaliation from Beijing.

The new pressure also comes after the White House already made one major accommodation to China: backing off a seven-year ban on USA companies doing business with ZTE, a Chinese telecommunications giant that had been accused of sales to Iran in violation of sanctions.

Speaking to reporters in Beijing, with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at his side, the Chinese government's top diplomat, State Councillor Wang Yi, said there were two choices when it came to the trade issue.

"I stressed how important it is for President Trump to rectify that situation so that trade becomes more balanced, more reciprocal and more fair, with the opportunity to have American workers be treated fairly", he said.

But that recommendation came prior to Trump's trip late last week to Canada for the G7 leaders summit and to Singapore for talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to defuse a nuclear standoff on the Korean peninsula.

Trump said he'll confront China "very strongly" over trade in the coming weeks, as his administration plans to announce on Friday a final list of tariff targets, which will be imposed shortly thereafter. But that offer has not been accepted by Trump, people familiar with the matter said.

President Donald Trump meets China's President Xi Jinping as he arrive for the state dinner with the first ladies at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on November 9, 2017.

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers, American Soybean Association, National Corn Growers Association and National Association of Wheat Growers are among the grower and industry groups whose members are asking Congress to convince the administration to halt tariffs and go back to the negotiating table. In an interview aired on Wednesday, Trump told Fox News that he was "very strongly clamping down on trade" with China.

"He ran on Making America Great Again and to put America first and he's doing just what he said, so we shouldn't be surprised at that", she said.

China also has threatened to retaliate with its own tariff hikes on $50 billion of US exports including pork and soybeans, though authorities avoided renewing that threat following the latest round of talks.

Trump did not specifically mention the tariffs and added that he had "a very good relationship with President Xi (Jinping) of China".

"President Trump asked me to send his regards". Stocks have traded erratically since late-February as investors size up the impact of trade tensions between the United States and major trading partners, including China, Europe, Canada and Mexico.
