中美贸易战即将拉开,美国总统正式宣布将对中国的高新技术的设备的引进征收600亿关税,而中国也宣布将对美国进口的商品征收30亿的关税。来看看外媒如何评价和描述这件事:

What’s next: Every U.S.-China policy expert and academic I’ve spoken with over the last 24 hours has told me the same thing: Trump’s crackdown will be undermined by his inability to enlist other countries in the effort.

 China plans to impose $3 billion worth of tariffs on U.S.-made products like wine, nuts and pork as retaliation against Trump’s $60 billion worth of tariffs on Chinese-made products.
