The Trade War Escalates: Trump Demands Broader Tariffs Against China

Update: Reutersis reporting that Trump is planning to impose tariffs on $60 billion of Chinese imports. The tariffs will primarily target technology and telecommunications imports - but would not be expressly limited to these sectors, according to one source.

Politico reported earlier that Trump rejected a plan for imposing $30 billion in tariffs on Chinese imports, saying they weren't big enough.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having a Jon-Luc Picard double face-palm, at warp speed, upon reading this.

Mr. President, you really need the Chinese government and business structure to be as sympathetic to your peace talks with Kim Jung Un as humanly possible.

The timing and optics of such tarrifs COULD possibly be worse... but I honestly cannot tell how.
