3:50 am
chinese broke it so in terms he believes will lead to a better deal i happen to think that tariffs were a country. a very powerful you know with a piggy bank that everybody steals from including china the white house issued a statement from the president saying hiking tide of some 10 to 25 percent on 250000000000 dollars worth of goods means china piece a lot more money directly into the u.s. treasury but that's not how tired of sworn they will drive up prices on their own 6 those and i through means america imports from china from washing machines to steal from food where to fish importers pay the tab of the costs almost always passed on to the customer. gets parts for a south carolina bike shop from china he's already added $20.00 to the cost of a new machine we don't know how we perceive that china is paying for this we're
3:51 am
paying for it and it's been passed on to our customers one tree group says for a family of 4 they'll be paying $767.00 more a year because the increased costs kind of spring it's just frustrating because you just know that most politicians aren't familiar with what it's like to live every day you know in the middle class you had to juggle what you can afford and which you can't afford and a lot of people can't even do that donald trump says a tough negotiation brings a better deal in american manufacturing might benefit as companies turn away from high priced chinese goods. to chinese the retaliating of one sector being hit is u.s. farming both sides are under pressure to do a deal on the world's 2 biggest economies have a problem with each other and the potential is there for the rest of the world to feel the pain alan fischer al-jazeera washington. well our white house correspondent joins us live now how quickly things change can we thought
3:52 am
a deal might be closed now the talks have completely broken down is there any hope for a resolution. yeah there still is optimism but there is less optimism that there was say 4 or 5 hours ago the feeling was that there was still a window of opportunity but as we are reporting those talks seemed to end abruptly ending just before lunchtime local time here in washington when they had been expected to go all day even into the night now the treasury secretary steve minucci and he left the meeting telling reporters that in fact he thought the talks were constructive but given no firm date for when to go she may or may not resume we've since learned from the china global times editor it's a tabloid that is published by the communist ruling party in china that in fact there is a tentative plan perhaps to try and pick up negotiations again in beijing but that is still not clear in terms of the timeline so there is a little bit of optimism but i can tell you it is
3:53 am
a lot less than it was early this morning but of course president trump has been saying that tariffs will actually benefit the u.s. economy what has been the general reaction that to this not just among politicians and congress there in washington but among business owners. well the feeling is that couple of things number one this is kind of a complex issue in the ordinary consumer doesn't necessarily understand how this is going to affect them they just know that it will because that's what's being reported alan fischer did a good job of explaining how that happens that there is a bit of a window of opportunity before the pain gets really bad in terms of the fact that rate now the higher tariffs only apply to goods that are now about to or are leaving china as of today to head to the united states that means those goods that have already started in this direction towards the shores of the united states of america they will not be subject to this tariff so there's still
3:54 am
a little bit of time but it's not much time and the president needs this to be resolved to because this is a real political gamble for him this is going to affect farmers this is going to affect the manufacturing sector these are all trump supporters so he doesn't want to make them unhappy there's incentive for the president and his team to try and resolve this and also to reassure financial markets thank you very much with the latest from the white house can believe it. well just there is a dream brown now reports from china's capital beijing on the reaction that to the new high attacking us. it was just after midday beijing time that china and the united states moved closer to a full blown trade war not that many people seem to notice in this busy beijing market shoppers we spoke to say the trade war hasn't so far affected what they've buy but it has affected the way some now think about the united states and
3:55 am
nationalist sentiment is building it in which it isn't going to it is the america's normal practice to bully others how to money countries always do this but but what can tell you when we get strong enough america we're not even think about bombing us he's referring to what happened 20 years ago this week when u.s. missiles struck china's belgrade embassy during nato's bombardment of yugoslavia killing 3 chinese journalists nato called it an accident china called it an act of war and still does here in china it's a year of political and emotionally charged anniversaries the most important one falls in october when people mark 70 years since the foundation of the people's republic a year in which china's leader has to appear strong especially over trade if you don't agree. with what you were china knows what it's like to be on the losing side in a real trade war in the mid 19th century it lost 2 to britain which was trying to force
3:56 am
china to buy opium a humiliating episode of chinese history and one to which president xi jinping often refers to today the trade war with the united states is one more concern in a critical year of the economic expectational is that the con is going to be very weak there's financial risks from her risks are rising and the housing market is not particular strong either so what we're looking at is a fragile economy and a very difficult situation from the outside. they've been dismantling the old u.s. embassy in beijing it's diplomats moved to a vast complex on the other side of the city years ago but this week of all weeks chinese workman began knocking down the old building befitting metaphor perhaps for the state of sinaloa u.s. relations adrian brown al jazeera beijing.

3:59 am
more sanctions for venezuela i mean what the united states announced is that they're implementing another executive order that so will likely have an impact on intelligence services here security forces among others and they also announce that they were targeting 2 venezuelan companies and 2 vessels that are in charge of sending oil from venezuela to cuba let's not forget that venezuela is a crucial provider of oil to the caribbean island and also i mean the united states evidence potion sanctions in venezuela since back in 2015 after violent protests happened in this country initially the sanctions were targeted towards members of evidence will end government to evolve to human rights abuses but later on earlier this year the united states announced some very serious sanctions that top. i get paid a base having a swell estate all company that for example targets also of the subsidiary in the united states citgo which represents billions of dollars for the venezuelan
4:00 am
government this last sanctions will certainly have an impact but not so much of venezuela but probably in cuba that is very dependent on venezuelan oil but still the sanctions already implemented earlier this year are likely to have an enormous impact in venezuela this country's economy has already started to deteriorate back in 2014 this year there is hyperinflation around a 1000000 percent inflation rate that has generated lots of shortages of food of medicines and when there is either food or medicine people cannot simply afford it because many of those who are dependent in a way they gain a minimum wage and they cannot simply buy many of the basic items in this country some of the analysts we have spoken to say that the united states is making a huge mistake when implementing sanctions yes the target is to it we have an effect and choke the venezuelan government forcing them to try to negotiate but they're saying that the sanctions are being implemented in the long run they're not
4:01 am
supposed to force the venezuelan government. and so in the end those who are going to be affected are the venezuelan people who are already suffering a lot because of the economic situation here. and we've seen a number of opposition politicians facing pressure they've been stripped of their parliamentary immunity how were.
