Noting China is blessed with a complete system of industries, a rising capability in scientific and technological innovation, the largest middle-income group in the world, and a huge domestic market for consumption and investment, Geng said China is fully confident of its economy and will be resolutely promoting reform and opening up as well as high-quality development in accordance with its own timetable and road map.

"The US tariff moves are very much like spraying bullets", read another Global Times op-ed published Monday. If tariff levels remain where they are today, the average American family is expected to pay about $770 in higher costs each year the tariffs remain in place, says Laura Baughman, a co-author of the study and president at Trade Partnerships Worldwide. Beijing has been waging economic warfare on the United States for years - stealing our intellectual property, forcing our companies to transfer technology as a price of doing business in China and subsidizing state-owned enterprises to prevent US businesses from competing in dozens of sectors of the Chinese economy. China responded with a plan to increase tariffs on $60 billion in US exports.

Asian shares took another beating on Tuesday but closed off their lows, following the more upbeat tone from US and Chinese officials. The Trump administration is now cracking down on such "theft" with measures ranging from monitoring and constraining Chinese scholars and students visiting and studying in U.S., to red-flagging Chinese tech giants such as Huawei and ZTE, both of whom are expected to face a crackdown in the United States in the coming days.

"On the one hand, we're engaged in a technology war, at the same time we're deeply embedded with China", he said. And it should have been handled a long time ago, and it wasn't. "It will always continue", Trump said.

"Americans understand the need to hold China accountable, but they also need to know that the administration understands the economic pain they would feel in a prolonged trade war", Grassley said in a statement. But, in the meantime, a lot of money is being made by the United States, and a lot of strength is being shown, ' he claimed.

We've gone up trillions and trillions of dollars since the election; they've gone way down since my election'.
