America’s top trade official is slamming China for unable to correct the unfair policies that resulted in the trade war forwards and backwards nations.

Lighthizer added, China makes little progress in correcting its “market distorting practices” despite the U.S. putting tariffs on nearly $250 billion valuation on Chinese goods.
The remarks come as the White House considers doubling those tariff to push China to create concessions on trade.
President Trump is expected to go about the issue along with Chinese counterpart for the G20 summit later this month.
