Walmart warns Trump tariffs may force higher prices

File US President Donald Trump wrote a combative series of tweets on Tuesday claiming that Beijing's retaliatory import duties on US goods were seeking to influence knife-edge midterm congressional elections

The White House this week escalated President Donald Trump's trade war, adding tariffs of 10 percent on another $200 billion on imported Chinese goods effective September 24, ahead of the busy holiday shopping season.

On Tuesday, China hit back, saying it would levy tariffs on US$60 billion worth of U.S. goods effective from Sept 24.

"So we charged 25 per cent on US$50 billion worth of merchandise tariffs coming in".

"It's disappointing that, despite the voices of those impacted, the administration continues to advance harmful tariff policies that threaten to weaken the USA economy", Matthew Shay, the National Retail Federation's chief executive, said in a statement on Friday.

"They never envisioned that somebody would actually do this".
