President Trump ramps up 25% tariffs on $200 billion Chinese imports soon after China backtracks on the Sino-American trade agreement. U.S. trade envoy Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin express frustration that China attempts to renege on prior commitments to the key bilateral resolution of perennial issues from bilateral trade deficit balance and currency manipulation to intellectual property theft and arbitrary technology transfer. Trump warns that he may impose 25% tariffs on another $325 billion Chinese imports if both sides cannot agree on a major trade deal in the next few weeks.

As the Sino-U.S. top trade negotiators continue to engage in bilateral discussions, stock market investors face dark clouds of uncertainty around whether both sides can salvage a fair trade deal. Most major stock market indices from S&P 500, Dow Jones, and Nasdaq to Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Hong Kong experience 3.5% to 6.5% hefty losses and plunges in response to the current trade standoff between China and America. As President Trump accuses China of breaking the trade deal across 7 chapters of the 150-page draft agreement, Chinese Vice Premier Liu He expresses his sincere hope that both sides can resolve contractual differences in the yearlong trade war.
