SHOW TRANSCRIPT

President Donald Trump has called for an additional $100 billion in tariffs on Chinese goods, ratcheting up a trade dispute with Beijing.

China imposed tariffs on $50 billion worth of American goods, like airplanes, cars and agricultural products. Those tariffs were in retaliation to tariffs Trump ordered on $50 billion worth of Chinese imports. 

The new tariffs will reportedly target Chinese robotics, communication technology and information tech.
