Trump defends China tariffs ahead of Xi meeting

WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Donald Trump touted what he said are the benefits of tariffs on Chinese goods, as he blasted Michael Cohen following his ex-lawyer’s guilty plea related to the Russia investigation, reported MarketWatch.

Ahead of his Saturday meeting at the G-20 summit in Argentina with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Trump suggested he is willing to continue with tariffs on Chinese products.

“Billions of dollars are pouring into the coffers of the U.S.A. because of the Tariffs being charged to China, and there is a long way to go,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

He also threatened to put tariffs on the remainder of Chinese imports.
