President Donald Trump announced his administration would impose a 10 percent tariff on the remaining $300 billion of imports from China that previously escaped new import duties. 

The president referred to the tariffs as "small" and insisted the talks would continue.

The new tariffs will come into effect on the September 1, Trump confirmed in a tweet.

But according to a report from the Washington Examiner, Trump escalating in the trade fight is showing Beijing that he will risk his own electoral position to win.

But regardless, China still poses a significant threat to the U.S. global order and must be defeated.

Last month, Trump said he would not grant Apple waivers on tariffs for 'China-made' Mac Pro parts, according to reports.

Trump wrote that Apple would not face tariffs if it made its parts in the US.

“Apple will not be given Tariff waiver, or relief, for Mac Pro parts that are made in China. Make them in the USA, no Tariffs!“ the president tweeted.

Apple made several requests to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative to make certain Mac Pro parts exempt from the proposed 25% tariff from China.

Neon Nettle reported in June Alphabet Inc.’s Google is moving some of its server hardware and Nest thermostats production out of China to avoid Donald Trump's looming tariffs.

Google already dodged a 25% tariff when it recently shifted ts production of U.S.-bound motherboards to Taiwan.U.S. officials have already warned that Chinese-made motherboards are a security risk.
