Trump says China tariffs may stay for ‘a substantial period of time’

Hong Kong (CNN)President Donald Trump has warned that US tariffs on $250 billion of Chinese exports are unlikely to go away anytime soon — even if the two countries reach a deal to end their trade war.

“We’re not talking about removing them, we’re talking about leaving them for a substantial period of time,” Trump said Wednesday. “Because we have to make sure that if we do the deal with China that China lives by the deal because they’ve had a lot of problems living by certain deals.”
The United States and China, the world’s two biggest economies, are trying to negotiate a resolution to their trade dispute that escalated dramatically last year with both sides imposing new tariffs on huge portions of each other’s exports.
