Trump takes final swipes at China's big companies

This trade war between the world's two biggest economies has caused a peak loss of 245,000 US jobs, according to a study by Oxford Economics. The study, commissioned by the US-China Business Council (USCBC), predicts that a significant decoupling could shrink US GDP by $1.6tn (£1.2tn) over the next five years. "With China forecast to drive around one-third of global growth over the next decade, maintaining market access to China is increasingly essential for US businesses' global success," the study said.
