As the new tariffs were imposed on the 1st of September, China followed, imposing a 5% tariff on US crude for the first time.
According to Trump's tweets, the US aims to be less reliant on Chinese goods, therefore imposing a 15% tariff on over $125 billion of Chinese goods including clothes, footwear, smart watches and flat-panel televisions. Also, DW adds that given that those duties take effect, virtually all goods imported from China will be covered.
In the meantime, the additional tariffs of 5% and 10% were levied on 1,717 items of a total of 5,078 products from the United States. Yet, Beijing will start collecting additional tariffs on the rest from 15 December.
