Trump says he'll raise China tariffs if Xi won't meet at G20

China Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang says China will fight till the end in a trade war.

The first scenario would shave 0.1 percentage points off United States growth and 0.2 percentage points off China's growth this year through direct trade channels, Moody's said.

On trade, Mr. Trump warned that if Xi chooses not to meet with him at the Group of 20 summit late this month in Osaka, Japan, he will move to impose tariffs on the $300 billion in imports from China that haven't already been taxed.

Tensions between Washington and Beijing flared in May after the Trump administration accused China of reneging on promises to make structural economic changes during months of trade talks.

"If we had not encountered anything unexpected, we would have become number one in the world by the fourth quarter", Huawei's chief strategist, Shao Yang, said Tuesday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Shanghai. But we had a deal with China.

"If there is any news in this regard, we will release it in due time". "Because right now they are getting absolutely decimated by companies that are leaving China, going to other countries, including our own, because they don't want to pay the tariffs", he said. "But if it insists on escalating trade frictions, we will respond to it with resolution and perseverance".

The businessman, who supplies electronics parts like flash integrated circuits to exporters, believes it will be at least another six months before any deal will be struck between the world's two largest economies.

A government adviser separately said that China has been skeptical that it would be able to negotiate a trade deal with the Trump administration. We got everything we wanted. Of China, he said, "As great as they are - and they are great - they don't have near the capability of our geniuses in Silicon Valley that walk around in undershirts and they're worth $2 billion". "At the end of the day, the tariffs are not going to fix our trade deficit with China".

Trade talks between the United States and China broke down in early May, with each side blaming the other. Trump has repeatedly said he expects to meet Xi in Osaka, but Beijing has not confirmed any such meeting.

The interview consists mostly of Trump ranting wildly and inaccurately about how cross-border trade works.

"We shouldn't try to pick out what's going to happen from a meeting that, as I understand it, hasn't even yet been scheduled", Ross said.

The Australian dollar, meanwhile, was steady at 69.6 USA cents. "We have noted that the USA publicly stated many times that it looks forward to arranging a meeting between the Chinese and USA presidents on the sidelines of the G-20 summit".

"Without tariffs, we would be captive to every country", Trump said during the call, "and we have been for years".
