President Trump on Saturday defended his policy of using tariffs to pressure other nations to negotiate revised trade deals after the latest round of U.S. talks in China wrapped up without any significant progress toward a deal.
Axar.az reports citing The Hill that Trump defended his position on trade after his administration threatened this week to place another 10 percent tariff on $300 billion in Chinese goods beginning on Sept. 1.
