Should Donald Trump be banned from Twitter?

"China's unfair trade practices and industrial policies, including forced technology transfer and intellectual property theft, harm the United States economy and workers", a second official said.

The move could lay the groundwork for Trump to impose tariffs against Chinese imports, which would mark a significant escalation in his efforts to reshape the trade relationship between the world's two largest economies.

Trump planned to launch the trade investigation more than a week ago, but he delayed the move in favor of securing China's support for expanded United Nations sanctions against North Korea, the senior administration official said.

President Donald Trump is seeking continued help from China's president in addressing the threat posed by North Korea's nuclear developments.

Vehicle plows into protesters in Charlottesville
The vehicle ramming killed a 32-year-old woman and wounded 19 people, including some with life-threatening injuries. Many are outraged by the city's plans to remove the confederate history.

Trump, who is on a working vacation at his New Jersey golf club, said Friday that he planned to be in Washington on Monday "for a very important meeting'" and "we're going to have a pretty big press conference". North Korea responded by detailing a plan to fire ballistic missiles toward the USA territory of Guam, home to US military bases.

Trump was reported to direct U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to determine if an investigation is warranted of "any of China's laws, policies, practices or actions that may be unreasonable or discriminatory, and that may be harming American intellectual property, innovation and technology". "And I think China will do a lot more".

Trump has suggested he would go easier on China if it were more forceful in getting North Korea to rein in its nuclear weapons programme.

The Chinese policies of an American company to enter into a join venture with a Chinese company to do business is "not fair", the official said.

Gordon Sun (孫明德), director of the Economic Forecasting Center under the Taiwan Institute of Economic Research, warned that if the USA eventually imposes trade sanctions against China, "Taiwan should not take pleasure in (China's) misfortune". Trump made addressing the USA trade deficit with China a centre-piece of his campaign a year ago and has suggested raising tariffs on goods from China.
