Mr Trump hit roughly half of Chinese imports with taxes past year, a move created to kick-start trade negotiations with the goal of increasing exports to that country and stopping the forced turnover of United States technology and theft of intellectual property. The tariffs are a major factor in the ongoing trade war between Washington and Beijing. He has made reducing the gap a primary component of his economic and foreign policy, launching a multi-billion dollar trade war with China while adding new tariffs to imports from allies in Europe, North America and other countries.

February's report was, however, in line with other labor market data, including weekly applications for unemployment benefits and manufacturing and services sector surveys that have suggested some moderation in job growth following hefty gains in January. This can lead to declines in both imports and exports. United States trade with China is dominated by the deficit in manufactured products.
Cellphone imports increased $0.6 billion. In September, it imposed a 10 percent tax on an additional $200 billion of Chinese goods.
Trump's tariffs also may cause USA companies to write off sizable investments in their Chinese factories as they scramble to shift operations to safer venues, said the study by Weinstein, Amiti and Redding.
On a day-to-day basis, not very much.
