- President Donald Trump will meet with his top trade advisers on Thursday to decide whether to activate threatened tariffs on billions of dollars in Chinese goods, a senior Trump administration official said.
- An official said that a draft document showed that the list would be close to $ 50 billion, with about 1,300 product categories, but both the dollar amount and quantity of products were still subject to change.
