Submit or else: US gives China 90 days to accept trade ultimatum or face tariffs

US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer has announced March 1 is the “hard deadline” for reaching a deal on trade with China, warning that new tariffs will be imposed otherwise.

“As far as I am concerned it is a hard deadline. When I talk to the president of the United States he is not talking about going beyond March,” Lighthizer said on the CBS show Face the Nation, referring to Donald Trump’s recent decision to delay tariff imposition until March 1 while talks proceed.

“The way this is set up is that at the end of 90 days, these tariffs will be raised,” he stressed.
