China will "never surrender" in trade row

Wallace Asks Kudlow 'Are You Reading Upside Down'

"I say openly to President Xi & all of my many friends in China that China will be hurt very badly if you don't make a deal because companies will be forced to leave China for other countries", Trump wrote on Twitter.

The move comes in retaliation to the decision by President Donald Trump last week to more than double levies on $200bn worth of Chinese imports to 25%. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

But speaking in Russian Federation on Monday, in comments relayed by China's Foreign Ministry on Tuesday, the Chinese government's top diplomat, State Councillor Wang Yi, struck a more upbeat tone, noting the talks had made important and substantive progress, as well as facing problems. Trump said repeatedly that China "broke the deal" the two sides had been working toward over the past several months.

Trump last week also ordered US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to begin imposing tariffs on all remaining imports from China, a move that would affect an additional $300 billion worth of goods.

Kudlow, Trump's economic adviser, said as much on Sunday. China's Commerce Ministry said it "deeply regrets" the United States decision.

Tariffs of 5 to 25 per cent will take effect on June 1 on about 5,200 American products, including batteries, spinach and coffee, the Finance Ministry said.

Trump has railed against the Chinese since the middle of his 2016 presidential campaign, complaining about unfair trade practices that put Beijing at an advantage.

According to two studies, estimates indicate current tariffs on Chinese goods have already cost American families between $400 and $700 a year. But to the surprise of many, China has yet to retaliate with new tariffs of its own. This has been proven recently when only 4 points were paid by the US, 21 points by China because China subsidizes product to such a large degree.

China to impose tariffs on $60bn worth of United States goods
Nearly 2,500 items will be subject to 25 percent tariffs, while more than 2,000 others will have smaller tariff increases. The tariffs will take effect on June 1, according to a statement on the Ministry of Finance's website on Monday.

While American officials argue that they have the upper hand in the year-long clash, China struck back amid reports it could raise the temperature even higher by boycotting U.S. agriculture, dumping American debt and cutting orders for Boeing aircraft.

"We have to be allowed to make up some of the tremendous ground we have lost to China on Trade since the ridiculous one sided formation of the WTO", he said.

The International Monetary Fund issued a warning last year that a full-blown trade war would weaken the global economy as global growth will depreciate year on year and this will have a significant impact for the wider word economy.

But actually it's American businesses that will pay the tariffs, and in many cases, pass the expense on to their American customers.

But China will not be bullied, he added: "We hope that the USA side does not misjudge the situation and not underestimate China's determination and will to safeguard its interests".

The combination of the US's actions and China's retaliation has sent stock markets sliding around the world.

Beijing is running out of US imports to penalize because of the lopsided trade balance between the world's two largest economies.

The comment period on the planned new tranche of US duties - which covers 3,805 product categories - is much shorter than in previous rounds and could potentially leave Trump in a position to trigger those tariffs by the time he meets Xi.
