President Donald TrumpPresident Donald Trump, despite repeated claims by the White House that trade talks with Beijing were progressing, announced Sunday on Twitter that tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods will increase next week to 25% from 10%.
“The Trade Deal with China continues, but too slowly, as they attempt to renegotiate. No!” Trump wrote in the surprise announcement.
He also threatened that the U.S. will impose 25% tariffs on another $325 billion of Chinese goods, just days after Vice President Mike Pence told CNBC that Trump was hopeful he could hammer out a deal with China.
Here are Trump’s tweets:
For 10 months, China has been paying Tariffs to the USA of 25% on 50 Billion Dollars of High Tech, and 10% on 200 Billion Dollars of other goods. These payments are partially responsible for our great economic results. The 10% will go up to 25% on Friday. 325 Billions Dollars....

....of additional goods sent to us by China remain untaxed, but will be shortly, at a rate of 25%. The Tariffs paid to the USA have had little impact on product cost, mostly borne by China. The Trade Deal with China continues, but too slowly, as they attempt to renegotiate. No!

Earlier this week, negotiators had reportedly made headway on some of the thornier matters in the trade dispute. According to the Wall Street Journal, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin joined Chinese negotiators in exploring various ways to bridge the divide on several of these longstanding issues, including rolling back punitive tariffs.
Bloomberg economist Tom Orlik said it’s difficult to interpret Trump’s tweetswithout more information, but, either way, they do add uncertainty to the final stage of the negotiation. “It’s possible talks are breaking down, with  China offering insufficient concessions, and an increase in tariffs a genuine prospect,” he said. “More likely, in our view, is that this renewed threat is an attempt to extract a few more minor concessions in the final days of talks.”
