President Trump announced Monday that he is imposing $200 billion worth of tariffs on Chinese imports, to be effective September 24. A 10 percent tariff will be in effect until the end of the year, then it will increase to 25 percent.

Fish, vegetables, nuts, grains, orange juice, and metals are all items to be affected.

Tuesday morning, the president tweeted:

China has openly stated that they are actively trying to impact and change our election by attacking our farmers, ranchers and industrial workers because of their loyalty to me. What China does not understand is that these people are great patriots and fully understand that China has been taking advantage of the United States on Trade for many years. They also know that I am the one that knows how to stop it. There will be great and fast economic retaliation against China if our farmers, ranchers and/or industrial workers are targeted!
