The Trump administration surprised observers on Tuesday by announcing it would impose tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods and restrict Chinese investment in the United States.

China has said it is ready to retaliate, the latest escalation of a conflict that has lasted more than a year.

"We want to reiterate that we don't want a trade war, but we aren't afraid of fighting one," said a spokesperson at China's foreign ministry.
