BEIJING (Reuters) - China's foreign ministry on Friday said that putting pressure on Beijing over trade won't work, after a report that U.S. President Donald Trump is prepared to quickly ramp up a trade war between the two countries.

Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the comments at a daily news briefing in Beijing.

Bloomberg reported that Trump has told aides he is ready to impose tariffs on $200 billion (£153.70 billion) more in Chinese imports as soon as a public comment period on the plan ends next week.
