Mr Kudlow said the sticking point was Beijing's reluctance to put agreed changes into law.
"The expected countermeasures have not yet materialized". "I reckon they will". "Remember, they broke the deal with us & tried to renegotiate". "China felt they were being beaten so badly in the recent negotiation that they may as well wait around for the next election, 2020, to see if they could get lucky [and] have a Democrat win", he said.
As of yet, no countermeasures have been taken by China although director of the National Economic Council Larry Kudlow said that the USA will find out imminently.
"They are stealing American ideas and American military secrets through the internet every single day", he said on "Fox News Sunday".
Kudlow was considerably more measured on Sunday.
In a remarkable break from his boss' rhetoric, President Donald Trump's chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow conceded that U.S. businesses and consumers are the ones who have to pay up for the hike in Chinese import taxes.
There are many other sources of tension ripe for flare-ups: US military aid to self-ruled Taiwan, Chinese territorial claims in the disputed South China Sea, US criticism of Beijing's Belt and Road global infrastructure programme, and US security warnings against Chinese telecom champion Huawei.
Beijing retaliated for previous tariff hikes by raising duties on US$110 billion of American imports.

Liverpool vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers - Football Match Report
Liverpool cruelly missed out despite finishing on 97 points, although they do have the Champions League final to look forward to. Everyone knows we'll go again 100 per cent - but in these moments if you really want some thing you have to feel this.
But that hasn't happened yet.
The two countries are sparring over United States allegations that China steals technology and pressures American companies into handing over trade secrets, part of an aggressive campaign to turn Chinese companies into world leaders in robotics, electric cars and other advanced industries.
The tariffs are not paid by the Chinese government or by firms located in China.
The offshore Chinese yuan fell to its lowest levels in more than four months at 6.88 to the dollar. But markets there are still higher than analysts had predicted.
"Such an easy way to avoid Tariffs?" the US leader said, "Make or produce your goods and products in the good old USA". A lot of people try and steer it in a different direction. "The U.S. -instigated trade war against China is just a hurdle in China's development process".
Rep. Seth Moulton, who entered the presidential race last month, said the U.S.
While supporters laud Trump as a tough negotiator, free-trade-minded Republicans have warned that the tariffs could do real damage to the economy, and many farmers - including Trump supporters - say the tariffs have hit their bottom line.
"But Larry, that isn't true", said Wallace. "In fact, both sides will pay", he said.
The United States faces a growing challenge to its lone superpower status from a communist-ruled China whose global influence, military might and high-tech capabilities are rapidly rising. "You've got to do what you've got to do". But additional new tariffs would boost prices on a broader number of finished goods - things consumers actually buy, like bicycles.
By late Monday, Beijing had not indicated what it would do, adding to uncertainty in the standoff. And that could grow. "We're going to continue the talks as the president suggested".
