In an interview with CNBC’s Joe Kernan, President Trump stated he was “ready” to enforce additional tariffs on China to “level the playing field.”
“We are being taken advantage of and I don’t like it,” Trump stated.
“We’re down a tremendous amount. I raised 50, and they matched us. I said, ‘You can’t match us because otherwise, we’re always going to be behind the eight ball.’ … I’m ready to go to 500,” Trump said.
