Global stock markets fell on Thursday after President Donald Trump renewed his attack on China ahead of trade talks between the two countries.
Dow futures were down 0.8%.
Trump slammed China during a rally in Florida on Wednesday, saying he decided to raise tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods because the country had “broke the deal.”
The increased tariffs will take effect just after midnight on Friday, the Trump administration confirmed earlier this week.
China said Wednesday that it would retaliate if Washington goes ahead with the tariff increases. A delegation led by the country’s top trade negotiator, Liu He, will travel to Washington for the talks on Thursday.
