Donald Trump's China Tariffs Don't Apply to Ivanka

A large number of Americans are uncomfortable with pre-Trump administration trade policies and believe that the U.S.is "giving more than we're getting", according to Republican pollster Conor Maguire.

"As a result of China's retaliation and failure to change its practices, the president has ordered USTR to begin the process of imposing tariffs of 10 percent on an additional $200 billion of Chinese imports", U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said in a statement. The proposed list of goods includes consumer items such as clothing, television components and refrigerators as well as other high-tech items, but it omitted some high-profile products like mobile phones.

All told, Trump has threatened eventually to slap tariffs on up to $550 billion in Chinese imports - more than China actually exported to the United States a year ago - if Beijing won't relent to USA pressure and continues to retaliate. China quickly responded by imposing tariffs on $34 billion in USA products. Rather than address our legitimate concerns, China has begun to retaliate against USA products.

Ivanka's products remain untouched by these tariffs and the fashion line is continuing to work with and create order contracts for Chinese shoe suppliers, such as Chengdu Kameido Shoes and Hangzhou HS Fashion.

On Friday, the US slapped 25 percent taxes on $34 billion in Chinese imports, majority are industrial goods that the Trump administration says receive subsidies or other unfair support from Beijing. These tactics include the outright theft of trade secrets, government subsidies to homegrown tech firms and demands that US and other foreign companies hand over technology if they want access to China's vast market.

President Donald Trump has already ordered tariffs on another $16 billion in Chinese exports for later this summer, after the comment period on the American list closes, and China will retaliate again. But Trump hasn't backed down, arguing that China's unfair trading practices are hurting American workers.
