Daimler, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz, said profit would fall in 2018 as new import tariffs on cars exported from the United States to China.
The company said the tariffs would hurt sales of high-margin Mercedes-Benz sports utility vehicles.

He is separately promising to impose tariffs on up to $200 billion of Chinese goods.
