On August 13, 2019, it was announced that the US is delaying
imposing tariffs on over $300 billion dollars of imports from China until Dec
15th because of “health, safety, national security and other
factors” according to The Washington Post and other news sources.
The products include mobile phones, laptops, video game consoles, some
toys, computer monitors, and certain footwear and clothing. The Trump administration say’s this delay was
in part to avoid hitting US shoppers this Christmas.
