Trade war: Trump says China 'broke the deal' in trade talks

China appealed to the United States to help salvage the deal earlier on Thursday.
'China will not capitulate to any pressure, and we have the determination and ability to defend our own interests'.
Plans by Washington to hike tariffs could cut China's growth by 0.3 percentage points but the strengthening economy has become more resilient to external shocks, a Chinese central bank adviser said on Friday.
The president said Xi's message was: "Let's work together".
However, the announcement did not affect United States plans to more than double the tariffs on $200bn worth of Chinese imports to 25 percent - dashing hopes that Trump might decide to hold off at the last minute as the negotiations continued.
"There are many scenarios from here but our baseline is still that we will have a deal by the end of Q2 - so within two months".
What will be the impact of the tariff rise?
Trump has accused China of reneging on commitments it had made so far in the talks.
In a statement, the American Chamber of Commerce in China said it was committed to helping both sides find a "sustainable" solution.
The Chinese "don't see themselves as fragile and they see the U.S. as having grown very quickly as a result of a tax cut that the USA can't afford", he said.
No breakthrough, and no deal - just, more tariffs.
"Well, he just wrote me a attractive letter".
Previously Beijing said it would retaliate if the tariff hike is implements while Trump had insisted China "broke the deal".

Negotiators from both countries met Thursday and are continuing to meet Friday.
If the dollar's twinges of vulnerability turn into something worse in the context of a full-blown trade war, the result could be a sharp tightening of liquidity in capital markets, crowding-out of weaker borrowers and a decline in the price of risk assets.
Why are the USA and China at odds?
US President Donald Trump said on Thursday that the move was meant to apply pressure to Beijing, which requested substantial edits to a trade deal being negotiated between the two countries.
"The US has assigned a lot of labels, such as backtracking, going back on one's word, and so on". Materials, industrials and consumer discretionary stocks also plummeted.
But China last weekend angered the president by trying to water down its commitments, according to Lighthizer.
A source familiar with the talks described China's changes to the proposals as "tremendous", noting that it could take a month to fix changes to the text, unless the United States accepts them wholesale.
