Shoppers may soon see higher prices on goods like shoes, toys, phones, and car seats as a result of President Trump’s new tariffs on Chinese imports.
Trump said Thursday that he plans to impose 10% tariffs on $300 billion in Chinese imports — including footwear, apparel, electronics, and other consumer goods — on September 1.
"This new 10% tariff is a direct hit on consumer products and family budgets… American families shouldn’t be a pawn in this trade war," said Hun Quach, vice president of international trade for the Retail Industry Leaders Association, a trade group that counts Walmart, Target and Home Depot among its members.
Shoppers can expect the biggest price increases on items that have a high share of sourcing from China, according to the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA), a retail trade group.
