A full timeline of Trump’s trade war with China shows its escalation in four distinct phases. The first two rounds were 25% tariffs on $50 billion in Chinese goods. The third phase was a 10% tariff on $200 billion in additional Chinese goods. In response to these initial stages, China retaliated by imposing 25 percent tariffs on $50 Billion of U.S. exports to China and later tariffs between 5 and 10 percent on about $60 Billion of U.S. exports to China. Most recently, a fourth stage has begun as the administration increased the 10 percent tariffs from stage three to 25 percent. China responded it would raise tariffs, reaching up to 25 percent for most of the goods on its $60 billion list starting June 1, 2019. Finally, the administration has also threatened further escalation, which would impose 25% tariffs on the remaining $300 billion or so of Chinese imports, which would be mostly consumer goods.
