US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Wednesday slammed Beijing for failing to offer "meaningful reform" on aggressive trade policies that harm US workers and industry, and threatened tariffs on Chinese autos.

Lighthizer said in a statement that China's policies on auto tariffs are "especially egregious," taxing US cars at more than double the rate it charges other countries.

"At the president's direction, I will examine all available tools to equalize the tariffs applied to automobiles," he said.
