(Bloomberg) — U.S. President Joe Biden said his administration is still discussing possible action on U.S. tariffs on Chinese imports, after Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo said she expected a decision “shortly.”

“No, we are having further discussions on that,” Biden told reporters in Delaware on Sunday when asked if there was a decision.
