China Vows To Counter Latest US Tariffs

I believe this is what the psychiatrists refer to as'projection

"It also shows that both China and the USA are highly dependent on each other, and the practice of imposing tariffs does not necessarily bring China to its knees", he said.

Hua Chunying, a spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, told reporters Thursday that the two sides have still maintained high-level communication through meetings, phone calls and letters. Markets around the world have been whipsawed this month by mixed signals about the state of the trade war between the United States and China and growing evidence that the dispute is already slowing global growth, especially in the manufacturing sector.

"China has been taking advantage of the US for so many years, that they are way ahead", Trump tweeted.

Yesterday's statement could indicate that it would not take long for Beijing to reveal its own retaliatory tariffs, according to Mr Tu Xinquan, dean of the China Institute for WTO Studies at the University of International Business and Economics in the Chinese capital.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq Composite both lost 3 percent, while the broader Standard and Poor's 500 lost 2.9 percent. The only impact has been that we've collected nearly $60 billion from China, compliments of China.

The stated reason? To allow US retailers to stock up on Chinese goodies for the Christmas season before prices get wrenched up.

The trade restrictions were imposed by President Donald Trump's administration previous year, part of a raft of measures initiated by Washington that have triggered a tit-for-tat tariff war between the world's top two economies. The tariff on those items will be delayed until December 15; some goods were removed from the list altogether.

President Donald Trump is accusing China of failing to buy U.S. farm goods, while his policy adviser Peter Navarro accuses China of currency manipulation. Another phone call is scheduled between the two sides later this month.

Delays are one among many headaches general contractors are grappling with as the trade war escalates, pushing up the cost of materials and casting uncertainty over planned and existing contracts. China accounts for more than 80 percent of the global supply of rare earths; most United States exports of the vital elements come from China. Kyodo said the request was separate from ongoing trade negotiations between the nations.

Hu Xijin also cast doubt in a Twitter message that China would follow up with significant purchases of US agricultural goods as requested by Trump. "I think they understand the circumstances".

US stocks surged nearly 2 per cent on Tuesday as the Trump administration said it would delay 10 per cent tariffs on some Chinese products, including laptops and cell phones, driving a 5 per cent surge in shares in iPhone maker Apple Inc.
