The Wall Street Journal: U.S. readying new tariffs on up to $200 billion of Chinese goods

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is preparing to apply additional tariffs on up to $200 billion in imports from China — a move seen as a response to China’s retaliation to an initial round of U.S. tariffs applied last week, according to people familiar with the matter.

The new tariffs follow moves by Washington to apply tariffs on an initial $50 billion in imports, $34 billion of which were announced last week.
