President Trump said U.S. consumers will not be effected by a new round of tariffs, which take effect on China Monday.

In a series of recent tweets, he spoke about how the tariffs will help the U.S. and put China at a disadvantage. He said the tariffs can be completely avoided if purchases are made from other non-tariffed countries or if products are purchased in the U.S.

The president added, many tariffed companies will be leaving China, which is why they want to make a deal so badly. He warned China against retaliation, saying it would only make the situation worse.

On Monday, China said it would impose new tariffs on more than $60 billion worth of U.S. imports on June 1, 2019.
