Analysts have warned that a full-scale trade war between the two could cause setbacks for global markets. If the United States imposed new levies on Chinese imports then Beijing "will not hesitate to take countermeasures against U.S. tariffs to safeguard China's interests", it added.

"If you have a big decline in the stock market just before the election, it could swing it in the way of the Democrats".

"If China does not make concessions now, it will be bad", he said.
Roughly a third of firms are shifting supply chains out of China, or the USA, and an equal proportion are delaying or cancelling investment decisions, the survey showed. "Some people in China expect that after the midterm elections, Trump will concede, but this Chinese wishful thinking will definitely not be true". "And so, Secretary Mnuchin, who is the team leader with China, has apparently issued an invitation".
"Every sector of the US economy stands to lose in a trade war", Matthew Shay, who heads the National Retail Federation, said in the statement.
