Paul warns Trump administration against escalating trade war with China

India, the world's biggest buyer of U.S. almonds, on June 21, 2018 raised import duties on the nuts by 20% and increased tariffs on a range of other farm products and USA iron and steel, in retaliation for United States tariffs on Indian steel. This is in addition to the Chinese imports worth USD200 billion on which Trump increased the import duty from 10% to 25%, beginning Friday. China has said it will retaliate, and may target the us agriculture heartland that is a wellspring of political support for the president.

"The President also ordered us to begin the process of raising tariffs on essentially all remaining imports from China, which are valued at approximately $300 billion".

China wanted to delete prior commitments that Chinese laws would be changed to enact new policies on issues from intellectual property protection to forced technology transfers.

China's size means that the U.S. "should not have an unrealistic illusion that once the trade war intensifies, it will have more bargaining chips at the negotiation table", the English-language newspaper said, reacting to the United States increasing tariffs on the goods to 25 per cent from 20 per cent.

"Every nation has its dignity, so the text ought to be balanced", Liu said.

But Liu told reporters the talks had been "productive" and said the two sides would meet again in Beijing at an unspecified date. He dismissed the idea that talks had broken down.

"On the contrary, I think it is just a small setback in the talks between two countries, which is inevitable", Hong Kong's Phoenix TV showed him as saying.

Liu also struck a note of defiance.

Andrew Nathan, a China specialist at Columbia University, said the Chinese would be perfectly willing to buy more American products and put a dent in America's trade deficit with China, a record $379 billion previous year.

In a series of tweets that cheered markets, Trump declared Friday that the talks with China had been candid and constructive.

The Chinese Communist Party's mouthpiece newspaper People's Daily played tough in a commentary published May 7, claiming that the regime wouldn't make any concessions-and has "complete confidence" that it can withstand any economic challenges the U.S. Commentators earlier in the week likened Vice Premier Liu He, who has been negotiating over trade with Washington, to a colonial era official who signed a much maligned treaty with Japan more than a century ago. "We think these differences are significant issues of principle", Liu said.

The amount of purchases by China should be "in line with reality", according to a commentary by state news agency Xinhua on Saturday.

The lack of progress left major question-marks hanging over the search for a deal on trade - just one source of tensions in a growing geopolitical rivalry that's already shifting supply chains and testing established economic and security alliances.

First, the Chinese side believes all punitive tariffs must be cancelled if an agreement is reached, he said, indicating that it remained under discussion. He added that the latest tariffs, which went into effect on Friday, would produce "massive payments" that would go directly to the US Treasury Department. Miller Tabak & Co. equity strategist Matt Maley sounded a similar note of caution and said that a 10% drop in the S&P 500 Index from its recent high would not be out of the question.

Representative Dan Kildee of MI said that after speaking with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Thursday he's "pleasantly surprised" Trump isn't settling for Chinese offers to buy more American soybeans and other goods without making structural changes in its economy.
