US Prepares Tariffs On Additional $300B Of Imported Chinese Goods

The dispute is affecting how US companies do business in China, says Jake Parker of the US-China Business Council in Beijing. In addition to rising costs, Parker tells NPR's Morning Edition, "The reputation of US companies as reliable suppliers has also taken a hit." He adds, "Many customers are beginning to diversify away from US products towards other suppliers, because the consistency in price and supply can no longer be guaranteed because of the uncertainty of these tariffs."
