- Date: 18th December 2019
- Summary: China imposed tariffs on U.S. products to "balance losses". China announces tariffs on US imports, including 15% duty on 120 American products such as fruits, nuts, wine and steel pipes. There's a 25 percent tariff on U.S. pork and recycled aluminium. BEIJING, CHINA (FILE - APRIL 3, 2018) (REUTERS) (SOUNDBITE) (Mandarin) CHINA'S FOREIGN MINISTRY SPOKESMAN GENG SHUANG, SAYING: "(China imposing of tariffs on U.S. goods) is to balance China's losses caused by Section 232 (of the 1962 U.S. Trade Expansion Act). Everyone should be clear, the tariffs are in response to Section 232 rather than the Section 301 probe. We have mentioned for a long time that China will not provoke a trade war and is unwilling to fight a trade war. But we are not afraid of trade war. If anyone insists (a trade war) and even fights at our door, we will resolutely fight, and fight to the end."

Donald Trump assumed the office of the President of the United States with a pledge to "make America great again."
Half-way through his first term, Trump claims that task has been accomplished, telling audiences at any of his frequent political pep rallies that "our country is respected again all over the world".
But, in the arena of U.S. foreign policy, whether Trump has engineered a solidification of America's position in the world, or whether he has weakened America's status as the pre-eminent global economic, military, and moral force, is a question that is sharply debated within America's fractious politics.
Few disputes, however, that whatever Donald Trump is doing in his foreign policy, it is unlike the way any previous U.S. president operated on the global stage.
