Trump to announce tariffs on China as eartly as MondayPresident Trump will announce $200 billion in tariffs on Chinese goods early next week, despite his administration's ongoing trade negotiations with Chinese officials.

The Wall Street Journal reported Saturday that Trump administration officials are prepared to make an official announcement as early as Monday or Tuesday.

A White House spokeswoman declined to comment to the Journal on a potential announcement, instead pointing to a Friday statement encouraging China to address trade issues with the U.S.

“The president has been clear that he and his administration will continue to take action to address China’s unfair trade practices. We encourage China to address the long standing concerns raised by the Unites States," the statement reads.
