Washington blasts China over retaliatory tariffs on $3 billion worth of US goods


(Worthy News) - The United States has lashed out at Beijing after Chinese tariffs on $3 billion (€2.4 billion) worth of US goods entered force on Monday.

"Instead of targeting fairly traded US exports, China needs to stop its unfair trading practices which are harming US national security and distorting global markets," White House deputy spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said.

China said on Sunday that it would start taxing 128 mostly agricultural US goods at midnight on Monday, including a 25 percent tariff rate on pork products and a new 15 percent tariff on fruits and nuts. [ Source: Deutche Welle (Read More...) ]

  1. Abba Father, Only You know what is in a person's heart. Nothing is hidden from Your eyes. You are the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. You even know what we will ask of You before we say it. LORD, please have mercy on us. Please direct all the leader's of nations steps, to do what is just and right in Your eyes. To trade with balanced scales. If the wicked are planning a trap, let them get caught in their own traps and let the innocent go free. None of them can withstand Your righteous right hand. None is greater than You. Help the people of all nations by keeping the wicked's plans from prospering. Set the oppressed free in the safety which they long for. Rescue us from those who are too strong for us. Forgive us, have mercy on us, help us. Let Your truth spread across this world. Raise up laborers because the harvest is ripe, yet the laborers are few. Thank You Lord for Your loving-kindness, Your compassion, and Your mercy. I ask this petition of You in the Name of our beloved Savior, Jesus Christ. AMEN
