* The People’s Daily, China’s official newspaper for the Communist Party, publishes a post titled “This, is China’s attitude!” on its official WeChat account.

* The post contains a graphic with three slogans touting the country’s defiant attitude in face of trade tensions with the US

* The dispute escalated overnight with Beijing retaliating against the latest round of US tariffs on Chinese goods.

The official newspaper for China’s Communist Party published a morale-boosting graphic on Tuesday touting the country’s defiant attitude in the face of trade tensions with the US

“This, is China’s attitude!” the People’s Daily said in the headline of a post on its official WeChat account.

The post contained just one image, with three slogans in gold lettering printed over the red Chinese flag and a picture of shipping containers. CNBC’s translation of the Chinese phrases reads:

“Negotiate, sure!”

“Fight, anytime!”

“Bully us, wishful thinking!”

Trade negotiations between the world’s two largest economies took a negative turn last week. On Friday, the US raised tariffs on $200 billion worth of imported goods from China to 25 percent from 10 percent. Beijing responded late Monday local time with tariffs of up to 25 percent on $60 billion worth of US goods.
