Following the tweet from the US Journalist Lawrence that the Chinese Vice Premier Liu He has cancelled his trip to Washington, the Editor-in-chief of Chinese and English editions of the Global Times, Hu Xijin, tweeted:
“Since @realDonaldTrump has made this kind of threat, I think Vice Premier Liu He will very unlikely go to the US this week. Let Trump raise tariffs. Let's see when trade talks can resume.”@realDonaldTrump
This comes after the US President Trump threatened on Sunday to lift tariffs on Chinese imports from 10% to 25%, which re-ignited US-China trade worries.
