China has hit back at President Donald Trump by imposing new trade tariffs on 60 billion US dollars of American goods. It comes after the US slapped duties on 200 billion US dollars of Chinese imports on Monday, escalating its trade war with Beijing. China will target American goods such as liquefied natural gas, which are produced in states loyal to the US president. However, in a tweet Mr Trump warned Beijing against seeking to influence the upcoming US midterm elections.(BBC)
