US President Donald Trump confirmed on Monday that additional tariffs on Chinese goods will be levied if Chinese President Xi Jinping does not attend this month’s G-20 meeting.When asked during a telephone interview if that means the new tariffs would go into effect immediately, Trump told CNBC’s Becky Quick, “Yes, it would.”The US president previously threatened to put levies on another $300 billion in Chinese goods if a trade agreement is not reached soon. The Trump administration increased tariffs last month on $200 billion worth of goods the U.S. imports from China.Trump is supposed to meet with Xi at the G-20 summit, which is scheduled for June 28-29 in Osaka, Japan. The leaders of 19 nations and the European Union are expected to attend. In the telephone interview on “Squawk Box, ” the president said he’d be surprised if Xi did not attend. Trump said he has “a great relationship” with Xi, adding that “he’s actually an incredible guy.”As the trade war between the U.S. and China continues, Trump has said he will continue raising tariffs on Chinese goods. He said his administration is currently taxing “35% to 40%” of the Chinese goods the U.S. imports. If an agreement isn’t reached, there are “another 60% and that’ll be taxed,” Trump said.https://www.cnbc.com/2019/06/10/trump-if-president-xi-does-not-attend-g20-more-china-tariffs-will-go-into-effect-immediately.html
>>410132jesus christ what the fuck is wrong with this guy throwing tariffs everywhere.
>>410189Shut your mouth or we will tariff your shit untill you do!
Xi was already going to attend so this is just Trump creating a problem where none existed and then claiming victory when nothing changes.
>>410189Tariffs are good because America is the richest country in the world. Otherwise, the world market equalizes over time, as it should (based on merit), and America won't rule over everything without any consequential pushback.
>>410199Trump fulfills all the shit americunts were promising to the world during last 30 years. he just make it happen and restarts capitalism in USA when screwing everyone until americans will install own millitary empire.
