Trump says mulling trade sanctions against China

Write a comment

February 13, 2018 23:16


United States President Donald Trump vowed today to revise a trade deal with South Korea to secure more favourable terms, while also threatening retaliatory trade sanctions against China.

"The Korea deal was a disaster," Trump told reporters as he hosted a White House meeting on trade, saying the US would negotiate a 'fair deal' or scrap it altogether.

Trump said he was also mulling trade sanctions against China, and was 'considering all options' including tariffs.

Trump's comments came a day after he singled out South Korea and China, along with Japan, over their trade surpluses with the United States, accusing them of 'getting away with murder'.  -- Agencies
