Trump threatened China with new duties if Xi Jinping missed the G20 summit.
US President Donald Trump on Monday confirmed the CNBC television channel that Washington would immediately introduce regular duties on Chinese goods if Chinese President Xi Jinping did not come to the G20 summit in Japan.
The President recalled that at the G20 summit, which will be held in Osaka from June 28 to 29, he is scheduled to meet with Xi Jinping, and noted that he would be surprised if the chairman of the PRC does not arrive at the meeting.
At the same time, Trump said that he had an «excellent relationship» with Xi Jinping.
Last week, Trump announced that he would probably decide on the next duties on Chinese goods after meeting Xi Jinping at the G20 summit.
Before the May round of trade negotiations between the United States and the PRC, which ended in failure, Trump raised tariffs on imported Chinese goods worth $ 200 billion from 10% to 25%, and also instructed to prepare for the introduction of duties for another $ 300 billion, that is, the rest of Chinese exports to the United States
