Navarro declined to say what US negotiators would seek to achieve in the talks with Chinese officials before the tariffs take effect.
But some big names on Wall Street said that despite Trump and his administration's claims that China is bearing the brunt of the tariffs, the trade war is indeed hurting USA consumers. China shipped US$3.1 billion worth of farm goods to America in the first half of this year, while it purchased US$5.6 billion of USA agricultural items over the same period, according to Chinese customs data.
Minor side note by the way since we were just on the topic, only 133 shopping days left until Christmas. Video game consoles, toys, computer monitors and clothes will also be left out of the latest tranche of tariffs, reducing the risk of American consumers feeling the pinch from the trade war.
Trump said some of the new tariffs will be delayed until December so retailers can import Christmas merchandise without worrying about extra tax.
An odd assortment of goods will benefit from the reprieve, including baby furniture, diapers and men's suits, as well as frozen fish, cigar holders, sugar beets, pesticides, bedding and school supplies.
USTR is also removing other items from the list based "on health, safety, national security and other factors". Also Bibles and other religious literature.
Meanwhile, the Kyodo news agency said that Trump asked Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to buy United States farm exports worth several hundred million dollars including specific products such as soybeans and wheat, reported Reuters.
In May, the USA introduced a 25% tariff on $250 billion worth of Chinese products.

Commercial vehicles, on the other hand, also witnessed one of the worst dips of 25.71 per cent to 56,866 units last month. He reckons that the decline in percentage terms may not be as severe as the base effect of the third quarter kicks in.
The National Retail Federation also cheered the decision, but warned that uncertainty continues, and tariffs "will result in higher costs for American families and slow the US economy".
The administration's delay comes amid growing concern about the economic fallout from the US-China trade war.
"We know that they have been screwing us for years and it's not going to happen again", he said.
It's very important, Rutledge said, for the likes of adviser Larry Kudlow, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, whom he deems "market thinkers", to win out over trade hawk adviser Peter Navarro. US and Chinese officials also announced renewed trade discussions.
However, relations soured further in the past two weeks and Trump on Friday indicated that the next round of talks might not happen, saying Washington was "not ready to make a deal".
"In the phone talks, China lodged solemn representations concerning US additional tariffs starting on September 1", said Xinhua, a Chinese news agency, in a four-paragraph story that did not mention agricultural products. "But it's their intention to buy a lot of farm product". "But they understand that", Mr. Trump said. "They haven't been truthful or let's say they certainly delayed the decision".
As news of the tariff delay broke, Donald Trump used Twitter to complain that China had not followed through with expected large purchases of United States agricultural products.
