List 4 is The Most Impactful

The 10% tariff is being imposed against the items on List 4, starting from 1st September 2019. This is going to be the most impactful, because, it covers massive 4000+ HTS, including those that are related to consumer electronics and appliances. So an average consumer, I guess for the first time going to be affected by the trade war in US.

As well as a total worth of goods impacted by List 4 is a staggering $300 Billion or 55.10% of the total imports.
