China on Friday threatened retaliation if those tariffs are enacted. It is also drawing up a blacklist of "unreliable" foreign companies. Although manufacturing sector has expanded for 35 straight months, that growth has slowed, with many blaming Trump's aggressive use of tariffs. China retaliated with tariffs on $110 billion in American goods, including agricultural products, in a direct shot at Trump supporters in the US farm belt.
Apple shares, Nasdaq's biggest component, lost more than $40 billion in market value after President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Thursday and threatened to slap a 10% tariff on $300 billion in goods the USA buys from China by September 1 if trade talks between the countries fail to make progress.
The latest round of duties comes amid growing concern that Mr Trump's strategy may be backfiring.
After resuming face-to-face talks in Shanghai this week, negotiators are to meet in Washington in early September for further discussions, after the tariffs would take effect.
The United States and China have been locked in a trade war marked by tit-for-tat tariffs since previous year. The US Institute for Supply Management said on Thursday its index of national factory activity fell to 51.2 last month, the lowest reading since August 2016.
Mr Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of the nationalistic Global Times, tweeted that the new tariffs put the prospect of a trade deal even further from reach. Trump said, referring to the highly potent and addictive opioid.

In later remarks, the United States president told reporters the 10% tariffs were a short-term measure and could be lifted in stages to more than 25%.
The Chinese commerce ministry said that the new tariffs are a "serious violation" of the cease-fire.
News that demand for USA exports had weakened underscored concern that trade was becoming a trouble spot for economies worldwide.
"Of course, they could react badly now and the talks could end entirely".
The new tariffs would hit a wide swathe of consumer goods from cell phones and laptop computers to toys and footwear, at a time when the manufacturing sector is already reeling from the accumulative impact of the trade war. That will totally pay for the tariffs. But Democrats in Congress and business groups say the measures are taxing ordinary consumers and making household goods more expensive.
