Trump Threatens More Tariffs on China

The US is escalating a trade row with Beijing over US tariffs on Chinese goods.

The US is escalating a trade row with Beijing over US tariffs on Chinese goods. Qian Liu is head of the Economist publishing group in China, and explains how China views the situation. Meanwhile, our regular economic commentator Roger Bootle of Capital Economics tells us if the dispute has the makings of a fully-fledged trade war. Also in the programme, we get a sense of how businesses in the UK are adapting to the prospect of Britain's exit from the European Union. Black businesswoman Sherry Collins is founder and editor of Pitch magazine, and explains why she has taken out an advert to stand up against racism, after she and others were mistaken as sex workers at a global advertising conference. Plus, John Travolta's latest movie 'Gotti' has received a 0% score on the movie review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes. Ashley Rodriguez is media reporter for Quartz, and tells us how influential the site actually is.
