The Ministry of Commerce launched its warning hours after President Donald Trump slapped an additional $100billion (£71.3billion) in tariffs on Chinese goods. In a statement, the ministry said today, if Washington persisted in what Beijing describes as protectionism, China would "dedicate itself to the end and at any cost and will definitely fight back firmly."

Tower Hamlets councillors have "barred" Donald Trump from the area should he still decide to visit the UK. The US President publicly pulled out of a visit that was planned for February this year amid concerns of mass public protests. But some Tower Hamlets councillors who remain concerned that Mr Trump will still visit voted through a motion to "ban" him from the area and declare it a "Trump-free zone" on Wednesday evening.

Labour Mayor John Biggs said: “Tower Hamlets is proud to be a multi-cultural borough.

The Saturday night gala is being hosted by Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel and gambling magnate Steve Wynn.

He once described it as "the great nation of my ancestors" but Donald Trump's dealings in Scotland have been dogged by controversy. The US President is fond of invoking his Scottish roots, once declaring "'I feel Scottish" on a visit to his mother's birthplace on the Isle of Lewis in 2008. The late Mary MacLeod Trump was born on the island before emigrating in the 1930s to the US, where she died in August 2000 at the age of 88.
