US President Donald Trump tweeted on Friday night that he means to increase taxing on $250b. worth of goods and products from China by 5% from 25% to 30% starting from the first of October. 
 
From September first, the remaining $300b. of Chinese goods coming into the US will be taxed an extra 5%, from 10% to 15%. 
Trump argued that China “had been taking advantage of the US on Trade, Intellectual Property Theft, and much more.” 
 
“As President, I can no longer allow this to happen!” He said.
