President Trump has threatened to add tariffs on “at least” an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese goods, according to The Hill.
Trump made the comments on Thursday morning while talking to reporters before a ceremony for the 75th Anniversary of D-Day in France.
“Our talks with China, a lot of interesting things are happening. We’ll see what happens. In the meantime, we’re getting 25 percent on $250 billion, and I can go up another at least $300 billion, and I’ll do that at the right time.”
Trump says he will make a decision on whether to implement the new tariffs “in the next two weeks.”
Trump went on to say he thinks China wants to make a deal, although the two sides have not met to work on a resolution in person for a month.
