On August 1, 2019, President Trump tweeted that the US will impose a 10% tariff on approximately US$300 billion worth of products from China (“List 4”) beginning on September 1. This will be in addition to Section 301 tariffs already imposed on US$250 billion worth of Chinese products.

Mr. Trump tweeted yesterday:

Following the President’s announcement, it remains to be seen: 1. if the Administration will launch an exclusion process for List 4 (a process was only launched for List 3 once the tariff rate was increased from 10% to 25%), or 2. if there will be any changes to the tariffs included on the proposed List 4 following the public comment process that concluded earlier this summer.
