In response to the White House statement released on Tuesday, the Chinese state media, Xinhua, said that China hoped that the US would not act impulsively but stood ready to fight to protect its own interests.

Xinhua added that China  was ready to fight back if Washington was looking to reignite a trade war.

Meanwhile, the Global Times stated, “the United States was suffering from a “delusion” and warned that the “trade renege could leave Washington dancing with itself”.  

White House announced that the US will continue withholding tariffs on a targeted $50 billion of Chinese imports unless Beijing addressed the issue of theft of American intellectual property.
