President Donald Trump kicked the trade war with China into high gear Monday, formally announcing the imposition of tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods.

The tariffs cover a wide array of goods, from minerals used in manufacturing, to vegetable juices, to leather handbags. All of the goods with face a 10% duty until the start of 2019, when the tariffs will jump to 25%.

While the Trump administration is downplaying the effect of the tariffs, many economists expect prices for these goods will increase once the tariffs are officially imposed on September 24.
