ABORAD AIR FORCE ONE: U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday that he has tariffs ready to go on a further US$267 billion worth of Chinese imports, as the world awaits his decision on imposing levies on US$200 billion worth of the Asian nation's goods.“The US$200 billion we are talking about could take place very soon depending on what happens with them. To a certain extent its going to be up to China, Trump said. "And I hate to say this, but behind that is another US$267 billion ready to go on short notice if I want. That changes the equation.”
Earlier on Friday White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Trump will not make any decisions on his threatened tariffs on another US$200 billion worth of Chinese goods before officials evaluate public comments on them. The U.S. Trade Representative's office received nearly 6,000 comments during the public comment period on the proposed levies, which ended Thursday night.(Reporting by Steve Holland; Writing by Lisa Lambert; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
