Trump to announce new China tariffs as early as Monday -WSJ

WASHINGTON, Sept 15 (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump plans to announce new tariffs of about $200 billion on Chinese imports as early as Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday.

The tariff level will likely be about 10 percent, below the 25 percent announced when the administration first said it was considering this round of tariffs, the newspaper said, quoting people familiar with the matter.
