When it comes to China, Trump believes Beijing is using "unfair" trade practices to gain an advantage on the United States, including lax observation of intellectual property law.
Beijing had said it would retaliate with punitive measures on U.S. products worth a similar amount, including soybeans, pork and cotton, but it had not officially confirmed that they had taken effect.
The U.S. and China on Friday launched tit-for-tat tariffs on each other's imports, the opening shots in what Beijing called "the largest trade war in economic history".
"China promised that it would not fire first, but it has been forced to take necessary measures to defend the core interests of the country and its people", the statement said.
The direct impact of the imposed tariffs on the two countries' economic growth will be modest because the value of goods involved accounts for only a sliver of bilateral trade, but the impact on targeted industries will be significant, some analysts said.
China's government also announced it was adding this round of United States tariffs to an existing complaint filed with the WTO in April shortly after Washington unveiled the threat to punish Beijing for its policies on intellectual property. Part of his plan is to radically change how U.S. trade deals work and to focus on protecting the domestic economy.
Both sides showed signs of digging in further as the tariffs went into effect.
The administration accuses China of using predatory practices in a push to overtake US technological dominance.

Trump's tariffs on the EU, Canada and Mexico are for as much as 25% on imports of steel and aluminium, which the USA has imposed on grounds of national security.
The back-and-forth trade battle between the world's two largest economies will likely be damaging to the USA economy according to trade experts, ths fact was not lost on the Chinese.
"And that's going to impact the stock market".
China's commerce ministry said it had lodged a new complaint with the World Trade Organization (WTO).
