The office of US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer has released a list of Chinese products, running to nearly 200 pages, that will potentially be hit with a 10 per cent import tax as early as September.
The US Trade Representative office will hold hearings on the targeted products and it's expected it will take about two months to finalize the list, at which point Mr Trump would decide whether to go ahead with the tariffs.
The tariff war was initially launched after Trump accused China of intellectual property theft by stealing American trade secrets and forcing USA companies to hand over technology to do business.
President Donald Trump last month threatened additional tariffs against China if it retaliated.
The public will have a chance to comment on the list before the new tariffs - to be imposed at 10% -come into effect. US officials insist China's retaliatory tariffs are unjustified.
The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative published the list of more than 6,031 product lines Tuesday and proposed 10 per cent tariffs on them.

Last week, Washington imposed 25 percent tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports, and Beijing responded immediately with matching tariffs on the same amount of USA exports to China.
The White House has complained that China has used predatory practices in a relentless push to grant Chinese companies an unfair advantage in the industries of the future, including robotics, electric cars and biopharmaceuticals.
Some U.S. business groups and senior lawmakers sharply criticized the latest action on Tuesday, with Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, a Republican, saying it "appears reckless and is not a targeted approach".
The president has repeatedly described his resort to tariffs - which are paid by American importers - as a lever to extract negotiating concessions from US trading partners.
"Unfortunately, China has not changed its behaviour - behaviour that puts the future of the United States economy at risk". But Mr Trump hasn't backed down, arguing that China's unfair trading practices are hurting American workers. The global tally for retaliation against U.S. exports, including by Canada, Mexico and the European Union over steel and aluminum tariffs, will be some $75 billion, according to an analysis by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Since then, the president has said his administration could impose duties on virtually all Chinese imports into the US.
Beijing has called on Chinese firms to substitute American imports with those from other countries in response to United States trade tariffs.
