Trump slaps tariffs on $200 bln in Chinese goods

Economists at UBS Group AG say even a 10 per cent tariff would slow the USA economy in the fourth quarter by enough to stop the Federal Reserve hiking interest rates again in December.

Trump also threatened to add tariffs on about $267 billion of additional imports if China retaliates against USA farmers or other industries.

Trump threatened that nations that don't make "fair" deals withe USA with getting "Tariffed" on Monday morning prepared to slap the trade rival with the expected $200 billion in penalties.

The United States had proposed the talks, but at the same time moved forward with planning additional tariffs on some $200 billion of Chinese products.

A gauge of global equity markets eased and the dollar slipped on Monday as an expected new round of tariffs from Washington on Chinese goods made investors skittish about an escalation of a U.S. -Sino dispute over trade.

Browns signing former Dolphins kicker Greg Joseph, report says
Additionally, Joseph made 165 of his 170 extra-point tries (97.1 percent) while kicking for the Owls. Understandably, when the Callaway touchdown took place the Browns' Twitter account went nuts.

American businesses have come out strongly against the tariffs, saying they have the potential to raise retail prices.

At the same time, the administration said it remains open to negotiations with China.

If true, the news should ease the minds of tech companies, who have been anxious about getting caught in the crossfire between the Trump administration and the war on Chinese-made imports.

"If you don't know what the rules are or how it's going to operate, you are going to be fairly hesitant about making that investment", said Snyder, who was in China to promote his state's industries, including autonomous vehicle technology. If China retaliates, Mr. Trump threatened to impose tariffs on an additional $267 billion worth of goods.

Trump has also complained about America's massive trade deficit - $336 billion past year - with China, its biggest trading partner.

The Patriots Have Agreed To A Trade For Browns Receiver Josh Gordon
The troubled star missed all of the 2015 and 2016 seasons due to suspensions and rehab for his substance abuse. Rather than outright releasing Gordon , the Browns are now trying to trade him to get something in return.

In a pair of tweets, Trump continued to make the case that tariffs largely harm the countries that are taxed, saying the impact on the US economy has been "almost unnoticeable".

For example, Chris Fortune, the president and owner of Saris Cycle Group, wrote a commentary posted on BRAIN Monday in support of the tariffs. Tariffs on steel (of 25 percent) and aluminum (10 percent) took effect in March, raising material costs for US manufacturers.

The U.S. economy appears strong enough to withstand damage from the tariff battle, he said.

"China is now paying us billions of dollars, and we will see how that all works out", the president said. "The unilateral and hegemonic moves by the USA will meet firm countermeasures from China", the Global Times said in an editorial.

Chinese officials are likely already tired of entering negotiations with Mnuchin, after a truce he supposedly brokered with Liu in May was publicly undermined by Trump.

Pochettino not anxious by Spurs slump
Liverpool made it five Premier League wins from as many games with this afternoon's 2-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur in Wembley. There is no point going through this season saying, "come on, come on, we have to win something, we have to win something".

"Today, following seven weeks of public notice, hearings, and extensive opportunities for comment, I directed the United States Trade Representative (USTR) to proceed with placing additional tariffs on roughly $200 billion of imports from China", the president announced in a statement.
