The president previously threatened to put levies on another $300 billion in Chinese goods if a trade agreement is not reached soon.
"The end of month G20 meeting is gearing up to be another major 'binary' risk event that should keep markets very edgy in the coming days and weeks. It also complicates the (Federal Open Market Committee) meeting next week where the Fed has (to) decide whether downside risks to US growth justify an immediate shift to a formal easing bias," Ray Attrill, head of foreign exchange strategy at National Australia Bank, wrote in a morning note.
"It doesn't feel (like) the needle has moved a whole lot since June of 2018" as the accusations and measures from the U.S. "remain the same," Taimur Baig, managing director and chief economist at Singapore's DBS Bank, told CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Tuesday.
"There probably is some sort of a method to this gambit, if you will, but I fail to see it because so far it seems like the sort of rhetoric that is coming out of the White House is going to make it impossible for a trade deal to be achieved," Baig said.
Last week, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said the U.S. central bank will "act as appropriate to sustain the expansion" after "closely monitoring" the impact of developments surrounding "trade negotiations and other matters."
