The latest round began March 22 when the Trump administration announced plans for tariffs of up to $50 billion to $60 billion in goods from China, in response to what it called Chinese theft of USA trade secrets, including state-of-the-art technology.
China's President Xi Jinping has soothed investor fears of a trade war with the U.S. as he warned against a "Cold War mentality", causing Asian shares to bounce. Then, in an effort to punish China over its alleged theft of intellectual property, Trump on Tuesday proposed a 25 percent tariff on $50 billion of imported Chinese goods.
He referred to his personal relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping and said the two men would always be friends, adding, 'Great future for both countries!'
Trump's move last week to threaten China with tariffs on $50 billion in Chinese goods was aimed at forcing Beijing to address what Washington says is deeply entrenched theft of US intellectual property and forced technology transfers from USA companies.
China has pledged to "counterattack with great strength" if Trump decides to follow through on his latest threat to impose tariffs on an additional $100 billion in Chinese goods - after an earlier announcement that targeted $50 billion.
Even with the USA tariffs, China can still reach its 2018 GDP growth target of around 6.5 per cent and the impact on employment will be limited, Wang wrote. The U.S. reported a $375 billion deficit with China a year ago, which Trump has blamed for the loss of American jobs and closing of plants.
Trump's tying of trade issues with North Korea was a warning to South Korea that it should closely coordinate with the U.S. and stay on the same page in achieving North Korea's denuclearisation, said Kim Hyun-wook, a professor at the Korea National Diplomatic Academy.
"It's a long process", Kudlow told Fox News Sunday.

"In the world's perception, the U.S.is overshadowed by an anxiety disorder and is very keen to show its anxiety", the newspaper said.
China, which is America's largest foreign creditor and the No 2 overall owner of USA government bonds, also does not appear to be willing to give into the pressure. "And we can only achieve win-win results by insisting on peaceful development and working together", the Chinese leader said.
The measures have been high on Trump's list of grievances against China.
Graham on "This Week" acknowledged that US farmers and some industries may be hurt by a trade conflict with the giant Asian country. He says that it's just more of the same as it relates to recent trade issues.
"But if we do a deal with China", he continued, "if during the course of a negotiation they want to hit the farmers because they think that hits me, I wouldn't say that's nice".
