Trump wants to move ahead with tariffs on Chinese imports worth $200 bln next week-Bloomberg

WASHINGTON, Aug 30 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump has told aides he wants to move ahead on a plan to impose tariffs on Chinese imports worth $200 billion next week, Bloomberg News reported, further ratcheting up trade tensions between the world’s two largest economies.

Both countries have levied tariffs on $50 billion on the other’s goods and threatened more duties. U.S. and Chinese officials ended talks last week without major breakthroughs on alleviating trade issues. (Reporting by Makini Brice; Editing by Tim Ahmann)
