The US president also threatened additional tariffs on $267 billion of Chinese imports if China retaliated with its own tariffs - which it did - unless the US and China reach a new trade agreement.
Trump said this week that he is "highly unlikely" to step back on a planned increase in tariffs on $US200 billion worth of Chinese goods to 25%.

"What I'd advise is for them to build factories in the United States and to make the product here", Trump said "And they have a lot of other alternatives".
