(U.S. Edition) Let's recap where the U.S. is at in its trade conflict with China. In June, Trump announced tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods, which the U.S. is planning to completely implement soon — but not before a hearing today and tomorrow with business leaders. We'll look at which products are being targeted and why. Afterwards, we'll discuss how a key Chinese biotech company — Changsheng — has apologized for falsifying production data for one of its vaccines. Then, we'll look at how a survey from the anonymous app Blind shows that many tech employees have faced backlash from management or HR for reporting incidents like sexual harassment.
