WASHINGTON—The U.S. is urgent China to reduce Beijing’s bilateral trade surplus by $100 billion, a White House spokeswoman mentioned.
Last week, President Donald Trump had tweeted that he sought after a $1 billion aid.
“It was a typo and he meant $100 billion,” the spokeswoman mentioned.
Having set new solar-panel price lists in January, basically aimed toward China, Mr. Trump now plans to impose stiff price lists on metal and aluminum imports to the U.S.
The U.S. could also be now making ready billions of greenbacks in price lists to levy on Beijing for alleged violations of U.S. highbrow belongings.
