Then things changed dramatically. Negotiations blew up during a trip by  Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to Beijing in May. Upon their  return to the United States on May 5, Trump announced that he was increasing  the tariff on List 3 products from 10 percent to 25 percent starting May 10. He  also stated that he would “shortly” impose 25 percent tariffs on the remaining  imports from China not yet covered by his tariffs. (The administration estimated  that this tariff increase would cover roughly $300 billion of goods, which it  referred to as List 4.)  Tariff escalation resumed where it had left off in September 2018, continuing  in fits and starts throughout the spring and summer and into the fall of 2019. 

The  US tariff increase on $200 billion of imports announced in May was ultimately  followed by new tariffs of 15 percent on an additional $101 billion of imports from  China on September 1. China retaliated each time (see figure 1). The ramping up of tariffs in 2019 was far from smooth and often recalibrated  midstream. The May 5 announcement, for example, would later be amended so  that anything “on the water”—having left a Chinese port—by May 9 could avoid  the US tariff increase provided it arrived at an American port by June 1. The June  1 date itself was later changed to June 15. (Some firms thus likely accelerated  exporting List 3 goods into the United States ultimately to beat the June 15  deadline.) A practical implication was that the same good leaving China on May  9 could face different US tariffs depending on the mode of shipment. A direct air  shipment would not face the tariff increase, whereas a seaborn shipment could if  it made lengthy stops, arriving in the United States after June 15.
