Asian markets bounce on talks hopes after Trump tariff threat

Asian markets mostly rose Tuesday after Donald Trump said he would thump China with another round of tariffs but give some room for talks before jacking them up to the highest rate. The latest volley from the White House will see $200 billion worth of goods taxed at 10 percent from September 24, going up to 25 percent from January 1 if the sides are unable to hammer out a deal. Trump also warned that another $267 billion had been lined up if Beijing retaliates.
