U.S. President Donald Trump is attempting to impose duties in order to force China to abandon their alleged unfair practices and potentially reach a new trade deal. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders responded to the latest tariff threat from China on behalf the Trump administration.
“Instead of retaliating, China should address the longstanding concerns about its unfair trading practices, many of which are laid out in USTRs 301 report,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.
