China has said it will impose tariffs on $60bn (£46bn) of US goods from   June extending a bilateral trade war.

According to the BBC, the move comes three days after the US more than doubled tariffs on $200bn of Chinese imports.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump denied that US consumers would pay for higher tariffs on Chinese imports and warned China not to follow suit.

But Beijing said it would not swallow any “bitter fruit” that harmed its interests.

China has raised tariffs on more than 5,000 US products, with the new rates ranging from 5% to 25%.
