WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday set tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports, effective in July, and targeted another $16 billion in goods for future tariffs.
The products hit with tariffs next month do not include hundreds of goods that the Trump administration said in April it might target, and were spared from new levies after a government review.
Following are the top U.S. imports from China which will carry a 25 percent tariff next month, as well as those targeted for future and those which were targeted in May but left off Friday’s tariff list. They are ranked by U.S. imports of the product from China in 2017, according to Census Bureau data.
