USA trade representative Robert Lighthizer called China's move "unjustified" and said Mr Trump's proposal was an "appropriate response to China's recent threat of new tariffs".
The White House said Trump had instructed the Office of the United States Trade Representative, the agency responsible for developing and recommending trade policy, to consider whether the additional tariffs would be appropriate under section 301 and, if so, to identify which products they should apply to.
Lighthizer said: "China has chosen to respond thus far with threats to impose unjustified tariffs on billions of dollars in USA exports, including our agricultural products".
China had already announced duties of 15 to 25 percent on United States agricultural products with little strategic importance, such as fresh fruit, pork and Californian wine.
The U.S. Trade Representative announced Tuesday it is planning to impose 25 percent tariffs on 1,300 Chinese goods worth $50 billion. He dismissed the notion that a trade war is inevitable, stressing that it's just a proposal to raise USA tariffs on an additional $100 billion worth of Chinese goods.
The Chinese government took less than 11 hours to respond with its own measures and it led to a sharp sell-off in global stock markets and commodities.
US PresidentDonald Trump barrelled through warnings of a damaging trade war with China on Thursday, vowing an additional $100bn in tit-for-tat tariffs on Beijing.
"China is guilty of many things, but the president has no actual plan to win right now".
Trump's unexpected move threatens to unravel efforts by top USA and Chinese trade officials to lower the heat and reach an agreement that could stave off an escalating conflict.
The top White House economic adviser is saying, "Blame China, don't blame Trump", for any trade fight. "The WTO is unfair to U.S".
"Our view remains that a negotiated solution is most likely and so the tariffs ultimately won't be implemented or will be much milder if they are", said Shane Oliver, head of investment strategy at AMP Capital in Sydney.
Investors were also reacting to the latest jobs report, which showed the USA economy added a lower-than-expected number of jobs in March.
Global stock markets were unhappy with the turn of events, as Wall Street dropped more than two percent, following European and Asian markets lower.
"Rather than remedy its misconduct, China has chosen to harm our farmers and manufacturers", Trump's statement said.
"Hopefully the President is just blowing off steam again but, if he's even half-serious, this is nuts", Sasse said in a statement. "We can not let this continue!"
A tariff, in plain terms, is a tax on goods coming into a country. "This is the dumbest possible way to do this", said the lawmaker from the farm-belt state of Nebraska. That development follows Trump's earlier pitch for $50 billion in tariffs on Chinese products.
"Compared with the USA list, which focusses on high-tech, China's list is more diversified", said Lu.
The list of products hit by trade tensions between the United States and China increases nearly daily.
"History and reality have repeatedly proved that economic globalisation has provided a strong impetus for the development of worldwide trade and economics", the newspaper said, adding that the USA was "one of the biggest beneficiaries" of this.
