Trump gears up for possible Putin meeting as Ukraine tensions rise

Trump gears up for possible Putin meeting as Ukraine tensions rise

In September, Apple won a reprieve from the initial 10% tariff on some of the company's products-including the Apple Watch, Apple Pencil, and AirPods-after the company wrote a letter to United States Trade Representative that said the action would increase prices for USA consumers.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Trump said he would be receiving a "full report" from his national security team on Russia's recent actions in eastern Ukraine and the Black Sea.

The president told the Wall Street Journal that if his meeting with Xi doesn't have a positive outcome, he will raise tariffs on all remaining imported goods from China.

Trump said he would place tariffs on an additional $267 billion in Chinese-made goods if he is unable to reach an agreement with Beijing during the upcoming Group of 20 summit in Bueno Aires, Argentina.

In recent months the United States and China have been engaged in rather heated negotiations regarding worldwide trade deals, and the USA has leveraged tariffs in an attempt to gain the upper hand. 'I mean, I can make it 10 per cent, and people could stand that very easily'. "But we're going to make a deal with China that's going to be representative of the United States the way it used to be".

White House economic guru Larry Kudlow told reporters Tuesday that new tariffs are definitely coming 'if we can't get something done.

They targeted two luxury hotels, a Jewish center, a tourist restaurant and a crowded train station. Indian security forces only retook control of the hotel on the morning of November 29.

Washington has kicked off the process of putting tariffs and investment restrictions on Chinese companies, while taking the Middle Kingdom to the World Trade Organization for dispute settlement.

He said Apple iPhones and laptop computers imported from China would "maybe" also be subject to tariffs, the newspaper reported.

American officials are reportedly focusing on the cybersecurity risks of the Chinese telecom.

The Trump-Xi meeting would be the first since the two countries began hitting each other with import taxes earlier this year. In September, the Trump administration announced a 10 per cent tariff on US$200 billion of Chinese goods, and said the rate will rise to 25 per cent on January 1. The two sides have been in negotiations for months, but Kudlow described them as being stalemated until just a few weeks ago.
