About a sixth of the items were among the products already hit by USA tariffs recently imposed on US$50 billion in Chinese goods, such as pressure-reducing valves or lubricants. Earlier speculation was that those tariffs, proposed in July, would take effect in early October, though trade associations have been gearing up for the announcement to come as early as the end of this week.
"China will have to take necessary countermeasures if the USA side ignores the opposition of the overwhelming majority of its enterprises and adopts new tariff measures", Commerce Ministry spokesman Gao Feng said Thursday. To a certain extent it's going to be up to China.
"That totally changes the equation", Mr Trump said.
The new $267 billion in tariffs would cover the value of all goods the Unites States buys from China, U.S. government data from previous year show.
In a Saturday morning tweet, Mr. Trump said that if Apple wants to avoid tariffs on its products, it should make those devices in the US rather than China.

Dell (DVMT), Cisco (CSCO), Juniper Networks (JNPR) and Hewlett Packard (HPE) said the tariffs would increase the costs of their networking equipment, damaging the companies' bottom lines and leading to possible United States job losses.
"We'll continue to talk to China", he said at the White House on Wednesday.
Computer and phone makers are involved in a global supply chain that includes Chinese manufacturing, and that can not be easily excluded without harm to U.S. companies, Intel said in a letter to the trade representative.
Those steps include slapping tariffs on $60 billion of United States imports, Gao said. And China has vowed to hit $60 billion in USA products in retaliation.
But so far China had not met the Trump administration's requests. "We hope, instead, that you will reconsider these measures and work to find other, more effective solutions that leave the USA economy and USA consumer stronger and healthier than ever before". The company has not announced plans to move manufacturing from China to the U.S. The tariffs would pressure China to stop that behaviour, the administration has said. "Now, they've got to treat us fairly", he said, and again threatened to impose duties on cars produced in Canada.
The administration has already imposed tariffs on $50 billion in Chinese products, and Beijing has punched back with tariffs on $50 billion in American goods.
