& industrial goods.

1)some far tariff on China industrial goods such as Solar, and Washing machine and later aluminum and steel
2)Its IP investigation is nothing more than trying to stop China domestic semiconductor development.

Well so far, Trump has no plan to target China Low ended goods such as Clothes, shoes and Toys.

His 45% tariffs on China goods is a complete Bluff trying to make China make concessions.

Well, his tariffs so far trying protect US industrial goods.

China semiconductor products are for China market only, Made-in-China 2025 calls for China self sufficiency of semiconductor at 75%.
China doesn't ship semiconductor products to US so, US cannot levy any fines and tariffs.  CHina can ignore Trump on his IP investigation

45% tariff on all CHina goods trying to SCARE China into stopping its semiconductor development at its own market and allow US companies to take control of CHina market!! That's  his End Game.

SEOUL/BEIJING (Reuters) - China and South Korea condemned steep import tariffs on washing machines and solar panels imposed by U.S. President Donald Trump, with Seoul set to complain to the World Trade Organization (WTO) over the “excessive” move.

Clothes, shoes and toys?

You’re so out of touch. Go to Walmart and you’ll see those junk made in Bangladesh, Vietnam, Indonesia, etc.

Now go to Best Buy and you’ll see all those LED TVs, digital cameras, smartphones, tablets, notebooks, etc.

Made in China.

But you’re right though that China is already moving into semiconductor manufacturing and IC design.

China will own the entire electronics industry value-chain from IC design to semiconductor manufacturing, from product design to electronics manufacturing and from supply-chain management to marketing and distribution.

You ain’t seeing nuthin’ yet.

look again,
  look at all those fashionable shoes especially synthetic, or leather lookalike shoes , its completely dominated by China. (find me a banglash,vietnam, indonesia leather/synthetic shoes!) Same with jacket.

You have to look at high level of clothes and shoes. Not T-shirt and sport wears!

Most folks(even Mexicans) prefer to Samsung and LG on TV,smartphones, Samsung and Apple on tablets.
China products on those areas are  underdog.

High-end fashion such as Ivana Trump’s clothing line are still made in China for faster time to market because they’re custom-made to order with higher quality materials and lower volume. China is getting out of the mass-market fashion goods which have gone to cheaper locations for the last ten years.

For electronics, even Samsung and LG TVs are made in China because all the most important components such as the LCD/LED panels, power supply, PCB, glass, etc. are sourced in-country. The only component sourced from outside are the ICs which is the next target of the semiconductor industry in China.

Chinese electronics brands are HUGE outside of the USA: Haier, Gree, TCL, Midea, Huawei, Vivo, OPPO, LENOVO, Konka, etc. Even in auto or industrial electronics, Chinese companies based in Shenzhen are the world’s largest suppliers of electronics subsystems to foreign automakers, industrial equipment manufacturers, telecommunications OEMs, etc.
