The White House is prepared to announce on Monday or Tuesday that the U.S. will levy new tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods, according to the Wall Street Journal. The upcoming tariffs is expected to be set on internet technology products and other electronics, printed circuit boards, and consumer goods including Chinese seafood, furniture, and lighting products, tires, chemicals, plastics, bicycles, and car seats for babies. It was unclear if the administration will exempt any of the products that were on the list, which was announced in July. Prior tariffs set  by the two countries have totaled more than $50 billion in reciprocal measures, as China has retaliated against U.S.

Hundreds of billions more in tariffs have been proposed by Trump, but those measures have been delayed while officials determine a final list of products.

Last week, Trump threatened the third round of tariffs on another $267 billion of Chinese imports, covering more than total Chinese exports to the U.S. China has threatened retaliation, which could include action against U.S. companies operating there.
