Tariffs and trade war: Some US goods ‘appear inevitable’ for China

China responded to U.S. tariffs that went into effect by levying $34 billion, the same amount as the U.S., on 545 U.S. goods that range from agricultural products to vehicles. China has adjusted its tariffs on other countries to help ease their reliance on a number of American goods that it will be unable to fully replace with similar products internationally. One expert said that the tariffs target a number of “goods produced by key elements of Trump’s support base, which suggests a desire to force more negotiation.” China has not included some key elements like liquified natural gas, which remains in growing demand from China as it works to reduce coal usage and its accompanying pollution.
