The memorandum comes amid high tensions between Washington and Beijing.
China, North Korea's most important ally and trading partner, has reiterated calls for calm during the current crisis.
In a call Friday, Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed that North Korea must stop its "provocative and escalatory behavior" and reaffirmed their commitment to denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, the White House said. But as the neo-protectionist rhetoric and anti-Chinese policy posture of Donald Trump was gradually established as the official view, the deep and multifaceted economic interdependence between China and the U.S.at both state and corporate levels is being thoroughly tested.
Friday morning, Trump tweeted that US military solutions were "locked and loaded" in case North Korea followed through on its threat. For the US, on the other hand, exaggerating the actual threat posed by North Korea is useful to legitimize its increased geostrategic presence in the Pacific, as well as to increase its military support for key allies in the region.
Hence, it would not be surprising to see that "hard" rather than "soft politics" issues will set the tone of the rivalry between Beijing and D.C.in the coming months and years.As far as global hegemonic competitions are concerned, the USA perceives China as the only viable candidate that could potentially challenge its global dominance through empowerment in political, economic and military realms. -China Economic and Security Review Commission, called the measure "a critical action, and long overdue".

Trump's warning came after the North Korea threatened to fire ballistic missiles over Japan towards the US Pacific island of Guam. Trump also reiterated their mutual commitment to denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, it added.
Trump planned to launch the trade investigation more than a week ago, but he delayed the move in favor of securing China's support for expanded United Nations sanctions against North Korea, the senior administration official said.
The administration is likely eager to make progress on trade, one of Trump's biggest campaign issues, after a recent series of legislative setbacks, trade experts said.
President Trump on Monday will start a process that could lead to action against China, which has been accused of stealing American businesses' intellectual property, even as he seeks Beijing's help against nuclear threats from North Korea. -China trade ties and of resolving differences "through dialogue and consultation". While Trump officially withdrew the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, an Obama-era trade deal, and will begin talks next week to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, other planned trade measures have been slow to materialize. But at a time when the far-right Modi administration is flirting with the USA, a judicial coup against Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif changed everything and contributed to the American strategy of encirclement. -China trading relationship. But analysts have cautioned that Trump faces a huge challenge in his desire to significantly reduce the USA trade deficit with China, which previous year stood at more than $300 billion.
An official continued on to say that there is more than $600 billion of intellectual property theft against USA companies with China responsible for a huge portion of that. That initiative sets forth a long-term plan for China's dominance in a wide variety of high-tech industries, including electric vehicles, advanced medial products and robotics.
Kennedy of CSIS says business leaders express a range of opinions, depending on how much they discrimination they face in China and how key Chinese profits are to their business.
