China announced on Wednesday additional tariffs on 106 U.S. products, after previously announcing tariffs on pork, fruit and a few other U.S. products earlier this week, in retaliation to Trump’s proposed tariffs on more than 1,300 imported goods from the country, which the administration made on Tuesday.

The trade showdown was initially sparked in early March, when Trump announced a 25% tariff on steel and 10% on aluminum exports.

The news has forced big U.S. businesses to plea with lawmakers and Trump to iron out these disagreements as the tariffs will result in lost revenue and jobs for Americans.

While the effective start date for the new charges will be revealed at a later time, according to China’s Ministry of Commerce, the tariffs are designed to target up to $50 billion of U.S. products annually.

Here is list of the top 30 U.S. products that China is targeting.
