The Twitter posts came one day after China vowed to impose steep tariffs on $60 billion in US exports in retaliation to large tariffs the Trump is considering on $200 billion in Chinese exports.
In July, the U.S. published a list of $200bn-worth of additional products to be hit with tariffs of 10% - a figure the United States is now considering raising to 25%. Also, Trump's tariffs so far have been levied on $85 billion worth of foreign goods, which might cover about.1 percent of the debt, notes The Washington Post.
"China is the third-largest importer of US LNG, but US LNG makes up only a modest but growing portion of China's supply portfolio, which suggests that this particular trade dispute will hurt America more than it hurts China", Kyle Isakower, API's vice president for regulatory and economic policy, said.
Top White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow on Friday ridiculed China's threat of $60 billion of retaliatory tariffs as "weak" and said the world's second-largest economy was in significant "trouble".
"We do have significant exports to China, especially in mechanical machinery and electrical machinery", said Mousa Kassis, director of the Export Assistance Network at Youngstown State University.

The editorial said the United States had escalated trade friction with China and turned global trade into a "zero-sum game".
While the duties don't pose a big threat to American producers or global prices, they may create headaches for traders.
More evidence of the inaccuracy of US tariff policy, according to Wang, is that the Office of the US Trade Representative announced in July how companies could apply for exclusion from the newly imposed tariffs on Chinese imports.
China's imports from the United States past year totaled $153.9 billion. But in the meantime, foreign nations are imposing tariffs on some USA goods such as soybeans and whiskey.
That move was in response to the Trump administration's proposal of a 25-percent tariff on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports. A final decision on the tariffs isn't expected until September. The commission stressed that China adopts the tariff measures to defend its lawful rights and interests, and to curb the escalation of trade friction, as well as minimize the impact on domestic production and people's livelihoods. That prompted concern among American companies that retaliation might expand to disrupting their operations in China.
