But the White House confirmed to CNN last week that the administration is weighing tariffs on at least $30 billion worth of other imports from China.
United States President Donald Trump is preparing to impose a package of Dollars 60 billion in annual tariffs against China, following through on a long-time threat, which according to him will punish China for intellectual property infringement and help create more American jobs.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that "We are very concerned about the actions taken by China and the dumping of steel and aluminum on the global market". The agency will consider information about product supply in other countries to determine whether national security considerations warrant a tariff exemption, it said.
The letter, sent by RILA and signed by a wide array of popular and well-known, leading usa retailers clearly shows the lack of support from the group of Trump's proposed tariffs on China imports into the country.
The Trump administration is said to be preparing tariffs against Chinese IT, telecoms and consumer products in an attempt to force changes in Beijing's intellectual property and investment practices.
"The imposition of sweeping tariffs would trigger a chain reaction of negative consequences for the USA economy, provoking retaliation; stifling United States agriculture, goods, and services exports; and raising costs for businesses and consumers", reads the letter, dated Sunday. "We agree it's time to address China's unfair trade practices, but we can do so in a way that doesn't destroy jobs, create uncertainty for businesses and increase every American's cost of living".
