ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump threatened on Wednesday to slap tariffs on Chinese products to show Beijing that the United States is "not playing games anymore" when it comes to leveling the field on trade. Addressing a rally in Tampa, Florida, Trump said that if he was elected in November, he would instruct the U.S. trade representative to bring cases against China both in the United States and at the World Trade Organization. Tariffs would be necessary in some cases "because they have to understand that we're not playing games anymore," he added.
