Donald Trump: U.S. could move "very soon" to hit China with $200B in new tariffs
The proposed tariffs follow 25% duties the Trump administration already has placed on $50 billion in goods from China, aimed at putting a stop to what the White House has said is China's theft of USA intellectual property, the forced transfer of American technology and cyberattacks on US computer networks.

The US government already imposed 25 percent tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports in July and another $16 billion last month. Because of this, the consumer will pay more for products from Apple, said the company.

Signs have been growing in recent weeks that Trump wants to focus his ire on China, which he has repeatedly accused of trading unfairly.

The company noted it spent US$50 billion with 9,000 U.S. suppliers in its most recent fiscal year, including Texas-based chip firm Finisar Corp and Kentucky-based Corning Inc.
The trade war could inflict further damage if it rattles financial markets, thereby hurting business confidence and potentially discouraging investment.
