But Trump has taken an increasingly hard line on trade around the world, with $200 billion (R2 863 300 000 000,00) in tariffs on Chinese exports set to take effect on Monday.
It added that China has responded to the US' tariffs by seeking common interests of not just both parties but also the global trade order, and has answered the US' concerns with the "greatest level of patience and good faith".
The charges came in a white paper published by China's cabinet, the State Council, and claimed the USA had turned toward "unilateralism, protectionism and economic hegemonism" as Trump pursues his "America First" agenda.
Still, China has other methods of retaliation open to it.
Monday's tariff hike follows a report by The Wall Street Journal that Chinese officials pulled out of a meeting to discuss possible talks proposed by Washington. The Chinese government had given no public indication whether it would accept the invitation.
Previous talks in late August led to little progress. Spot gold has fallen over 12 percent since April, which is when the trade conflict between two biggest economies of the world intensified.
On Monday, the ratings agency Fitch cut its forecasts for next year's Chinese and global economic growth by 0.1 percentage points to 6.1 per cent and 3.1 per cent, respectively.
But he said that Trump's lack of a clear goal for the trade war - outside of vague assertions about the trade deficit - raises the likelihood that the negotiations could be fruitless.
A broad swath of products are on the hit list, including billions in Chinese-made voice data receivers, computer memory modules, automatic data processors, and accessories for office equipment such as copiers and banknote dispensers - instantly making widely used goods more expensive. To the contrary, Trump has claimed that his tariffs are meant to protect and support American industry. Past year the USA imported around $3 billion in wooden furniture and nearly $4 billion in metal furniture.
Chinese regulators have tried to cushion the blow on their own economy by targeting American goods such as soybeans, natural gas, fruit, whisky and automobiles that are available from Europe, Latin America and other Asian countries. The Chinese tariff "restricts the target market a bit for second-wave developers" in the United States, he said.
It affirmed China's stance that it is a developing country, a claim that rankles Washington, Europe and other trading partners. Beijing can handle a trade war; they surely don't want a shooting war on their border.
In a first, the Trump administration has also punished a unit of China's defense ministry for buying fighter jets and missiles from Russian Federation in defiance of sanctions on Moscow.
Mr Trump has repeatedly threatened higher tariffs on the remaining Chinese imports should Beijing retaliate against Monday's round.
Beijing set its new levies on $60 billion of United States goods at 5 and 10 percent and warned it would respond to any rise in U.S. tariffs on Chinese products accordingly.
