US President Donald Trump is raising tariffs on Chinese imports by an additional five percent. The latest escalation in the trade war comes hours after Beijing announced it will impose tariffs on $75bn worth of American goods.
Trump says he has “hereby ordered” American companies to leave China, but he has no authority to do so.
