Trump says tariffs 'working far better' than anticipated

The threat comes as the USA has increased rhetoric about the dispute.

The Trump administration ratcheted up pressure for trade concessions from Beijing this week by proposing a higher 25 per cent tariff on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports.

"We used to pay just 24 percent tariffs for USA pork in China", he explains.

As of this morning, China's total equity value ($6.09 trillion) has fallen behind that of Japan ($6.16 trillion), losing its status as the world's second largest financial market (after the $31 trillion), a title China had kept for just months shy of four years, Bloomberg data shows.

"I sense that we're seeing a hardening of attitudes on both sides", said Jacob Parker, vice president of China relations at the U.S. China Business Council.

"When developing tariff measures, China took into full consideration the potential impact on its companies and people".

According to new data, the U.S. trade deficit is growing despite Trump's tariffs.

Beijing will impose five percent tariffs on more than 600 types of USA goods, including planes and computers. But Bloomberg pointed out that US stocks have yet to regain strong January performances since the escalating trade war.

Beijing warned on Friday that it was prepared to impose new tariffs on $60 billion worth of USA goods if Washington ups the ante in the escalating U.S.

An editorial of People's Daily, the mouthpiece of the Communist Party of China, said that the US President was starring in his own "street fighter-style deceitful drama of extortion and intimidation".

The Chinese Ministry of Commerce said it was "forced to do act" after Trump's threat earlier last week to raise a proposed tariff rate on US$200 billion worth of Chinese goods from 10 per cent to 25 per cent.

The dispute is part of broader US complaints about global trading conditions that have prompted Trump to raise duties on steel, aluminum, washing machines or solar panels from Canada, Europe, Japan and South Korea. "Time will prove that the USA eventually makes a fool of itself", the paper said.
