So far, the United States has imposedtariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese products to pressure China to make sweeping changes to its trade, technology transfer and high-tech industrial subsidy policies. "And reducing the reform deficit should also help reduce tensions in the ongoing trade war".

On Monday, the Communist Party backed Global Times newspaper warned that if Trump went ahead with the tariffs, China would not just play defense. "Once again, I urge China's leaders to take swift action to end their country's unfair trade practices".
On the call with reporters, senior administration officials declined to comment on when talks might restart with their Chinese counterparts.
