NEW YORK -- U.S. President Donald Trump has instructed aides to push ahead with tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods, despite a simultaneous attempt within his Treasury Department to restart trade talks with China, according to media reports Friday.

It is unclear when the tariff announcement will be made as the rollout appears to have been delayed to consider revisions after public comment, sources told Bloomberg. Sources also told the news outlet that Trump may be running out of Chinese products he can target without significant backlash from major U.S. companies and consumers.
