China announces new tariffs on 106 US products, including soy, cars and chemicals

The effective start date for the new charges is not announced, though China’s Ministry of Commerce says the tariffs are designed to target up to $50 billion of U.S. products annually.
The 25 percent levy on U.S. imports includes products such as soybeans, cars and whiskey.
The move comes less than 24 hours after President Trump unveiled a list of Chinese imports that his administration aims to target as part of a crackdown on what he deems as unfair trade practices.
