US President Donald Trump is in a verbal argument with China.

Last week he announced new higher tariffs on imports from China. Tariffs are taxes that are placed on products.

The additional tariff will see an increase of 5 percent on imports from China.

The move came hours after Chinese announced plans to hit $75 billion of US goods with their own tariffs.

Finally, Mr Trump went to twitter and asked American companies to look for alternatives to China. He even suggested they make products in the US instead.

Sadly, China and America don’t seem to be able to find an agreement on trade that will suit both sides.
