US President Donald Trump’s trade war against China has moved up a gear as it brings in a 25% tax on a second wave of goods worth $16 billion.
The move ratchets up the dispute which began in July. The US imports far more goods from China than it exports to it.
According to BBC News, there are fears that more tariffs could cause further damage to companies and consumers. Goods affected this time include motorcycles and aerials.
China immediately imposed retaliatory taxes on the same value of US products.
