Mr. Trump said on Twitter that tariffs on Chinese goods could increase as much as 25% on Friday. A Chinese delegation led by Deputy Prime Minister Liu He is set to visit Washington to begin a new round of trade talks on Wednesday. Mr. Trump’s warning puts new pressure on China and could escalate the current trade war between the two countries.
