China has threatened to retaliate by hitting US agricultural exports if tariffs on Chinese imports worth up to $60 billion are announced by Washington.
According to the Farm Credit Administration, total USA agricultural exports stood just under $140 billion in 2015, with Mainland China being the number one destination accounting for $22.5 billion worth of goods.
