Updated : June 19, 2018 07:19 PM IST
A sell-off in Chinese stocks drove Asian equities to a four-month low on Tuesday.
Spreadbetters expect European stocks to follow their Asian peers and open lower, with Britain's FTSE dropping 0.3 percent, Germany's DAX shedding 0.7 percent and France's CAC losing 0.75 percent.
Trump said if China increases its tariffs again in response to the latest US move, "we will meet that action by pursuing additional tariffs on another $200 billion of goods."
