China lets yuan slump past seven per dollar for first time in over decade as trade war escalates

The shakeout in the yuan comes days after the US President Donald Trump stunned financial markets by vowing to impose 10 percent tariffs on the remaining $300 billion of Chinese imports from September 1.
