The Trump administration will delay 10% tariffs on certain Chinese products, including laptops and cell phones, that had been scheduled to start next month.

The delay in imposing the tariffs was confirmed by the Office of the US Trade Representative.

Other products whose tariffs will be delayed until December 15 include "computers, video game consoles, certain toys, computer monitors, and certain items of footwear and clothing," the USTR said in a statement. 

A separate group of products will also be exempt altogether "based on health, safety, national security and other factors," it added.
