Biden team still looking at options on China tariffs, White House says
The Biden administration is continuing to review options on tariffs on Chinese goods, the White House said Tuesday, as a report said the president was expected to roll back some levies on those imports soon. A Wall Street Journal report said President Joe Biden could announce his decision this week. Briefing reporters, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Biden's team is "talking through this" but she had no announcement as of Tuesday afternoon. Biden's decision could include a pause on tariffs on consumer goods such as clothing and school supplies, as well as launching a framework to allow importers to request tariff waivers, the Journal reported.
