The US has already imposed tariffs on $US50 billion worth of Chinese imports, and is believed to finalising duties on an additional $US200 billion ($281 billion) worth of imports in the next few days. Donald Trump hinted to reporters on 7 September that he may impose tariffs on a further $US267 billion worth of Chinese imports. If this threat eventuated, it would effectively mean a tariff on all Chinese imports into the US. Jeffrey Wright from the Eurasia Group says US industry remains divided on Trump’s tariffs stance.
