(Worthy News) - President Trump escalated his trade feud with China Monday night, threatening to impose tariffs of 10 percent on another $200 billion worth of Chinese goods.

“After the legal process is complete, these tariffs will go into effect if China refuses to change its practices,” the president said in a statement.
