According to official figures, USA goods and services trade with China totalled an estimated $710.4 billion in 2017 of which United States exports were $187.5 billion and imports were $522.9 billion.

They warned, however, if Beijing decides to execute its own round of tariffs on American goods, the president will unleash further measures.
"If we're not right, we'll roll them back, " Trump is reported to have said.
