The Trump administration’s promise to keep consumer products out of the trade war -- so shoppers wouldn’t take a hit -- may be falling by the wayside.

The U.S. Trade Representative released a new round of proposed tariffs on Chinese goods, listing 200 pages of items with a value of $200 billion. They target baseball gloves, handbags and digital cameras, among other goods. The move is in response to what the Trump administration says is China’s unfair trade practices, and comes after both nations already announced tariffs on $34 billion of each other’s products.
