US Says It Will Raise Tariffs After China Reneges on Vows

Buffett says Bezos has created a 'miracle' with Amazon

The deadline ended in March, which was extended by Trump and he did not increase the import tariffs.

He announced that tariffs on $200 billion of goods would rise to 25 percent by the end of the work week.

He wrote, "The United States has been losing, for many years, 600 to 800 Billion Dollars a year on Trade".

"There is still a question of whether this is one of the famous Trump negotiation tactics, or are we really going to see some drastic increase in tariffs", said Nick Twidale, Sydney-based analyst at Rakuten Securities Australia.

Elsewhere, shares fell in Paris and Frankfurt. The number of rigs drilling for oil in the United States increased by two to 807 in the week to May 3, according to worldwide industrial service company Baker Hughes. Benchmark U.S. crude shed 36 cents, or 0.6 per cent, to $61.58 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average had recovered and was down to less than a 1 percent drop at 250 points a little more than an hour after opening bell.

Trump's action came as a major Chinese delegation is expected to arrive on Wednesday in Washington for the latest round of talks to end the trade war between the world's two biggest economies - a round billed as the last one and possibly leading to a deal to end the conflict.

It isn't clear how or why the president launched the tweet that sank a thousand stocks on Sunday.

President Trump was coasting Monday morning on the positive economic outlook for the United States, as reflected in a Friday jobs report that boasted a 3.6 unemployment rate. The White House and the U.S. Trade Representative's Office declined to comment.

Chinese media outlets have been told not to independently report on Trump's overnight tweets or tweet about them, and instead adhere to any report from the official Xinhua news agency, said a source with direct knowledge of the matter.

Boeing knew about problems with 737 Max before crash
Ms King described both features as "supplemental" and "advisory" to other information provided to pilots during flights. Boeing told airlines that the warning light was standard equipment on all Max jets.

Trump said tariffs on US$200 billion of Chinese goods would increase to 25 percent on Friday from 10 percent.

The increase in USA tariffs on Friday would be the first since Trump imposed 10 percent tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods in September, coming on top of 25 percent tariffs on $50 billion of goods enacted earlier previous year. "These payments are partially responsible for our great economic results", Trump tweeted.

Investors started the new week on a downbeat tone after Trump said via Twitter that he planned to raise tariffs on imports from China to 25 per cent from 10 per cent as of Friday.

Needless to say, the damage to the Chinese economy would boomerang back to the US, slowing growth and presenting a series of headwinds for a variety of sectors.

"It will be more challenging to shift to alternative suppliers for the remaining goods, implying a smaller decline in Chinese exports", Julian Evans-Pritchard, a China economist at Capital Economics, said.

Two months ago, the Trump administration threatened to raise more tariffs on the September list of products.

Trump said "The Trade Deal with China continues, but too slowly, as they attempt to renegotiate. No!" "With China we lose 500 Billion Dollars", he tweeted. 'Don't back down. Strength is the only way to win with China'.

Oil prices sank on Monday morning after President Trump made a decision to reignite the trade war with China just before it was supposed to be resolved. The U.S. isn't willing to re-negotiate previous commitments, said Mnuchin, adding that about 90 percent of the pact had been finalized. As I pointed out on April 5, China's exports have fallen as a percent of its GDP from 36% in 2006 to 18% today.

China's financial markets are trading for the first time since last Tuesday after a long holiday, with the nation's equities already under pressure amid concern the government stimulus won't be as robust as many had anticipated.
