Trump's latest trade tiff with China has Texans again bracing for pain

The dispute has continued to escalate, as Trump last week threatened to jack up the tariff rate on the next $200 billion in Chinese imports his administration plans to target to 25 percent, from the planned 10 percent.

The US decision to levy 25 per cent tariffs on the same value of Chinese goods is "very unreasonable", and China will have to retaliate to protect its rightful interests and the multilateral trading system, China's Ministry of Commerce said in a statement.

The United States and China implemented tariffs on $34billion worth of each other's goods in July.

"My expectation is that U.S. tariffs on $250 billion of imports from China will be in effect about a month prior to the November U.S. elections". This is the second tranche of such tariffs and comes into effect on August 23.

Those $16 billion in tariffs complete what is considered President Donald Trump's first round of tariffs on China, totaling $50 billion.
