Trump Wants to Raise Tariffs on China Even More If Xi Doesn’t Meet With Him at G20

Trump believes Jinping will meet with him, saying they have a great relationship.

President Donald Trump threatened to raise tariffs on China again if President Xi Jinping doesn’t meet with him at the upcoming Group of 20 summit in Japan.

Trump was asked in an interview with CNBC on Monday whether tariffs on about $300 billion in Chinese goods would be enacted immediately if there’s no meeting at the summit later this month.

“Yes, it would,” he answered. “I think he will go and I think we’re scheduled to have a meeting. I think he’ll go, and I have a great relationship with him. He’s actually an incredible guy, he’s a great man. He’s very strong, very smart, but he’s for China and I’m for the United States.”

Trade talks with China hit an impasse last month after the president accused Beijing of reneging on provisions of a tentative agreement. The two countries have since escalated their trade war.
