NEW YORK -- The latest tariffs on Chinese imports proposed by U.S. President Donald Trump's administration will likely bring trade frictions into American homes, with 10% levies planned on furniture, computer components, food and many other consumer goods.
Washington has so far announced or put into place three rounds of duties targeting a total of 7,133 Chinese products, worth $250 billion in all. The first, which took effect July 6, targeted 818 items worth about $34 billion. A second round, announced last month, pushed the total to $50 billion with another 284 targets. But those lists largely focused on industrial materials and components.
