Sanders confirms Trump made decision on China tariffs

United States President Donald Trump made a decision concerning the list of Chinese products which are to be hit with tariffs, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders stated during a press briefing. However, Sanders declined to say what the president's decision was.

Earlier, multiple media reports stated that US Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin argued against imposing tariffs on China, during Trump's meeting with advisers on Thursday for the last round of consultations on the matter.

Another report stated that the list of Chinese goods that are to be hit with import tariffs was reduced from around 1,300 products to between 900 and 800. Trump's administration is set to announce the final decision on June 15.
