China said it is ready to impose retaliatory tariffs on $60bn worth of United States goods if that happens. USA stocks erased gains after Trump's remarks.

The world's two largest economies have already applied tariffs to $50 billion of each other's goods.

The administration could decide to begin taxing the imports - equal to almost 40 percent of all the goods China sold the United States a year ago - after a public comment period ends on Thursday.

"Because all tariffs ultimately show up as a tax on United States consumers, they will increase the cost of Apple products that our customers have come to rely on in their daily lives", the company said.

Major technology company Apple Inc ( AAPL.O ) said a "wide range" of its products would be hit by the tariffs, but not its iPhone. The tariffs would potentially hurt USA companies that import everything from handbags to bicycle tires.

Levying duties on all Chinese purchases would hit "every aspect of our American lifestyle - so the clothes that we put on our back, the food that we eat, the cars that we drive, theshoes that we wear", Hun Quach, vice president of global trade for the Retail Industry Leaders Association, said by phone.
