Trump announces higher U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods starting Friday

WASHINGTON -- President Donald Trump raised pressure on China over trade negotiations on Sunday by saying U.S. tariffs on certain Chinese products will increase to 25% on Friday and that more Chinese goods will face additional tariffs.

"For 10 months, China has been paying Tariffs to the USA of 25% on 50 Billion Dollars of High Tech, and 10% on 200 Billion Dollars of other goods," Trump wrote on Twitter.

"The 10% will go up to 25% on Friday. 325 Billions Dollars of additional goods sent to us by China remain untaxed, but will be shortly, at a rate of 25%," he added. (Reporting by Timothy Gardner Editing by Mary Milliken and Lisa Shumaker)
