President Donald Trump tweeted on the afternoon of Aug. 1 that he will impose an additional round of tariffs on Chinese imports.
The string of tweets reads that China recently promised to buy agricultural products from the U.S. “in large quantities, but did not do so.”
Trump also states that “my friend President Xi said he would stop the sale of Fentanyl to the United States—this never happened and many Americans continue to die.”
As a result, Trump has threatened to impose a “small additional tariff of 10% on the remaining 300 Billion Dollars of goods and products coming from China,” starting on Sept. 1.
This is in addition to the 25 percent tariff previously imposed on Chinese goods. Trump ends his series of tweets with “We look forward to continuing our positive dialogue with China on a comprehensive Trade Deal, and feel that the future between our two countries will be a very bright one!”
