Please consider Trump says has tariffs ready for further $267 billion worth of Chinese imports.

> U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday that he has tariffs ready to go on a further $267 billion worth of Chinese imports, as the world awaits his decision on imposing levies on $200 billion worth of the Asian nation’s goods.
