The announcement came after the Office of the United States Trade Representative announced earlier this week that it was considering increasing the proposed additional duty on $200 billion of Chinese products from 10 percent to 25 percent.
On the contrary, the national debt has continued to rise under Trump, and his tariffs have resulted in retaliatory measures from other countries. "It is very early in the game, but definitely a negative effect".
China urges the United States to relax its controls over exports to China, and protect and promote the high-tech trade and cooperation between companies from both countries, the ministry said.
Trump initially proposed 10 percent tariffs on an additional $200 billion of Chinese imports, but he told trade officials this week to consider raising that to 25 percent. To put matters bluntly, the U.S. government is now facing the medium term possibility of paying its farmers to throw away foodstuffs while Chinese investment in its various domestic industries is used to help push Chinese goods to the forefront of innovation while helping Chinese products ranging from agriculture to industrial goods to reach foreign shelves.
Trump also oddly boasted in OH that the tariffs would help the US pay off its $21 trillion debt (Trump is responsible for $1.9 trillion of debt). For them, the central objective is to block China's economic and technological development under its "Made in China 2025", plan which they regard as the most significant threat to the economic, and ultimately military, supremacy of the US.
China's decision to threaten $60 billion of USA goods is the first time this year that Beijing has not tried to match D.C.'s tariffs dollar for dollar.

Beijing's earlier round of tariffs appeared created to minimize the impact on the Chinese economy by targeting soybeans, whiskey and other goods available from Brazil, Australia and other suppliers.
President Trump vowed Saturday to continue imposing tariffs as a central part of his economic agenda and called his critics "fools", pivoting sharply away from the free-trade message that senior advisers had tried to erect in recent weeks. It also warned that it could adopt further countermeasures at any time. That prompted concern among American companies that retaliation might expand to disrupting their operations in China. In exchange, Juncker offered to buy more USA soybeans and United States natural gas at some point in the future.
Trade tensions between the US and China have been escalating for months, driven by President Trump's aggressive rhetoric and policy positions.
"After years of rebuilding foreign countries, we are finally rebuilding our country", said Trump, who tweeted about how he is using tariffs to negotiate fair and reciprocal trade deals before the rally.
According to the US Census Bureau, the US goods trade deficit with Canada jumped to just over $2 billion in June from $1.5 billion in May.
