Trump has told aides he wants to impose tariffs on $200 billion of goods imported from China, Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs reports.

The public comment period on the new round of tariffs, which would cover a broad range of goods, ends August 30.

The U.S. imposed 25 percent tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese products in early July, and then on $16 billion of imports in August. After China chose retaliation over reform of its trade practices, Trump said the U.S. would impose a 10 percent tariff on $200 billion of goods.
