Trump 'ready' to tax all Chinese imports

Asian markets fall as China US ready for more tariffs

President Donald Trump on Friday (Saturday NZ Time) escalated his threats to punish China for its trade policies, warning anew that he's prepared to impose tariffs on all Chinese imports and arguing that Beijing has manipulated its currency at the expense of the United States. Tariffs on another $16 billion of electronics and components are scheduled and the Trump administration has threatened to target another $200 billion of Chinese products with tariffs, a move that would raise prices for Americans and hurt China's economy.

St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank President James Bullard said Trump's comments would have no bearing on interest rate decisions, which are made by a committee made up of government officials and the presidents of privately owned regional Federal Reserve banks.

Trump, in posts on Twitter, also lamented the strength of the US dollar and accused the European Union and China of manipulating their currencies.

Trump has been on a mission to reduce the US$552-billion USA trade deficit and rebuild the nation's manufacturing sector.

US President Donald Trump is taking a more aggressive, protectionist posture on trade than his recent predecessors, sparking retaliatory measures from countries around the world and igniting disputes on multiple fronts. I don't like all of this work that we're putting into the economy, and then I see rates going up, I see China where they're - I mean look at what's happening with their currency, it's dropping like a rock.

He also says that the rules imposed by Google are meant to "ensure technical compatibility", and that they're optional. In this way it has cemented the dominance of its search engine.

Even though he's frustrated, Trump said he's "letting them do what they feel is best".

During an interview with CNBC recorded Thursday, Trump said Fed Chair Jerome H. Powell's plan to continue gradually raising short-term rates was undermining the administration's efforts to spur economic growth.

The Fed has raised interest rates seven times since December 2015 and has penciled in two more rate hikes for this year.

"We have a long tradition here of conducting policy in a particular way, and that way is independent of all political concerns", Powell said.

Interest rate hikes can suppress investment and the unemployment rate, two metrics Trump and Republicans touted frequently throughout his presidency. Of course the President respects the independence of the Fed.

Speaking on BBC1's The Andrew Marr Show , Mrs May disclosed the mystery advice. Trump told during a press conference with Ms.

"I am not happy about it", Trump said.

Trump said he is doing this in the national interest.

"We are being taken advantage of and I don't like it", Trump said in an interview with CNBC. "I couldn't care less what they say, because my views haven't changed". Critics lined up this week to urge the administration to reject the tariffs, arguing they would raise auto prices, squeeze automakers by increasing the cost of imported components and invite retaliation from trading partners - and allies - like the European Union and Canada.

When asked about the stock market possibly falling if the United States imposes such a large amount of duties, Trump said: "If it does, it does".

Friday's tweets from Trump comes after a clip of his interview with CNBC that aired Friday morning was released Thursday afternoon in which the president says he isn't thrilled with the Fed's current policy stance.
