"With the restrained response, China hopes Trump can realize his errors and mend his ways", said Xu Hongcai, deputy chief economist at the China Center for International Economic Exchanges, a Beijing think tank. "Nevertheless, the first volley of shots and retaliatory response has been set off".
After that, tariffs could go into effect for all countries, including Canada and Mexico.
A major reason for Xi's frustration, analysts said, is that Beijing feels it has already made concessions to Trump by tightening sanctions against North Korea over its nuclear programme, and at considerable cost to Chinese companies.
President Donald Trump announced new tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods on Thursday. Foreign business groups complain Chinese regulators are trying to squeeze them out of promising industries.
Trump's steeltariffs would affect China even less, as the nation makes up only 2.5 percent of USA steel imports due to existing regulations. That leaves Beijing room to take more drastic steps.
