U.S. President Donald Trump said Monday that he had asked the U.S. trade representative to identify Chinese products that would face a new 10 percent tariff. The president said the new tariffs would affect $200 billion dollars in goods.

The president said the tariffs were in reaction to China's decision to place similar import taxes on $50 billion in U.S. goods. The move was a response to Trump's decision to add a 25 percent tariff on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods last week.

China's commerce ministry strongly criticized the latest move saying it does not follow "the consensus reached by both sides" during negotiations. The two sides have been involved in negotiations with China offering to buy $70 billion dollars in U.S. goods.

Trump has blamed the trade imbalance between the two countries for the loss of American jobs. China's trade surplus with the U.S. last year was about $375 billion. Trump said he hopes to cut the trade deficit with the increased tariffs.

Pompeo said he raised the issue with Chinese President Xi Jinping. He said he told Xi that the current system is "not fair competition."

Trump's former economic adviser, Gary Cohn, has warned that a continuing trade dispute could result in higher inflation and personal debt.

However, business expert Derek Scissors of the American Enterprise Institute says the U.S. could gain from the dispute. He notes that the U.S. imports more from China than China imports from the U.S.
