President Donald Trump unveiled a list Tuesday of Chinese imports his administration aims to target as part of a crackdown on what the president deems unfair trade practices.
Sectors covered by the proposed tariffs include products used for robotics, information technology, communication technology and aerospace.
The U.S. Trade Representative, which announced the list, says it targets products that benefit China's industrial plans "while minimizing the impact on the U.S. economy." Specifically, it takes aim at China policies that "coerce" American companies from transferring technology and intellectual property to local Chinese companies.
