In a series of tweets yesterday, President Donald Trump said the U.S. will impose a 10% tariff on the remaining $300 billion worth of imports from China, known as list four, beginning September 1st.
"Trade talks are continuing, and during the talks the U.S. will start, on September 1st, putting a small additional Tariff of 10% on the remaining 300 Billion Dollars of goods and products coming from China into our Country. This does not include the 250 Billion Dollars already Tariffed at 25 per cent," Trump tweeted.
The United States Trade Representative (USTR) has not yet issued a Federal Register Notice.
Trump said the negotiations between the two nations will continue, however, China has vowed to retaliate if the additional tariffs are implemented.
