From Tequila to TV Cameras — Here Is a List of US Goods China Is Targeting With a 25% Tariff

Among the food products affected are certain kinds of beef, plant-based spices and cooking oils



    China upped the ante Monday in the ongoing tit-for-tat trade war between the world’s top economies.

    Beijing said it will raise tariffs on $60 billion in U.S. goods on June 1 in retaliation for President Donald Trump’s decision last week to hike duties on Chinese goods. This includes raising tariffs on more than 5,000 U.S. products to as high as 25%, the Chinese Finance Ministry said Monday.

    Stocks fell sharply on Monday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average trading down more than 700 points. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq were headed for their worst day of the year, while the Dow was on pace to post its biggest one-day loss since Jan. 3.

    The U.S. hiked tariffs against Chinese imported goods yet again, bringing duties from 10% on $200 billion to 25% on $250 billion worth of goods. Industries reliant on trade between the US and China says they will have to pass the higher fees onto U.S. consumers.
