China–United States relations

Chinese stocks are down, falling more than 5 percent as of midday, following President Donald Trump's threats, Sunday, to raise tariffs against Chinese-made goods. The current negotiations for a new deal for the two countries were scheduled to re-start Wednesday, but are now in question. U.S. stock futures also fell sharply.

Mr Trump's vow to hike tariffs raises pressure on China ahead of trade talks due to resume this week.
