President Donald Trump has threatened to tax as much as $550 billion in Chinese products - an amount that exceeds America's total imports from China past year.

"The Chinese side is shocked by the actions of the U.S.", it said in a statement, according to a translation by Google.
The market slide may have been contained in part by speculation the Trump administration could change its mind by the end of August, when the tariffs are due to come into effect, some strategists said.

"American families are the ones being punished".
"The behavior of the USA is hurting China, hurting the world, and hurting itself", it said.
