Trump threatens tariffs on all $500 billion of Chinese imports
Updated : July 23, 2018 07:06 AM IST
Around $505 billion of Chinese goods came into the United States in 2017, leading to a trade deficit of nearly $376 billion, US government data shows.
The magnitude of the imbalance has continued into 2018, with Chinese imports totaling $205 billion in the first five months of the year and the deficit reaching $152 billion.
Trump is taking a more aggressive, protectionist posture on trade than his recent predecessors, sparking retaliatory measures from countries around the world and igniting disputes on multiple fronts.
