WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Friday ordered the U.S. trade representative to start the process of raising tariffs on all remaining imports from China, the USTR said in a statement.
The statement by USTR Robert Lighthizer said the value of products subject to new round of tariffs is approximately $300 billion.
It said details on the process for a public notice and comment period for the tariffs will be published shortly in the Federal Register, and more details will be available on the USTR’s website on Monday.
