President Donald Trump said he's raising tariffs further on Chinese imports in response to Beijing's retaliation earlier in the day, deepening the impasse over the two nations' trade policies, Bloomberg News reports.
Duties on the $250 billion of imports already in effect will rise to 30% from 25% on Oct. 1, Trump said in a series of tweets Friday after U.S. markets closed. He also said that the remaining $300 billion worth of goods will be taxed at 15% instead of 10% starting Sept. 1. - Bloomberg

I didn’t plan on doing an update or making another post, but a bunch of people requested it so here it is. I’d also like to thank everyone who took the time to reply to the original post.
So right after posting the original today, I took some of the comments advice and I was going to text her and tell her what happened, I was mulling around trying to think of what to say when I got another text from her saying “if you’re done being weird, do you want to take (dogs name)? We can talk about what the heck happened” (we always walk her dog together so that’s what the offer was) I said yes and went over to her place.
Obviously the first question she asked once we started our walk was what happened and if I was alright and she also apologized, I said she didn’t do anything wrong and just came clean and told her the truth, I didn’t even want to look her in the eye so I was just looking forward until I heard her burst out laughing, she thought it was hilarious, she made jokes about how she didn’t know she was that good and that she was going to get her romper (what she was wearing when it happened) dry cleaned and send me the bill. I was relieved we could laugh about it together and that she wasn’t creeped out or anything. She knew I was inexperienced with girls and she’s the first girl I’ve ever been this good of friends with, but she asked if that was really my first kiss ever, she said that because I always played sports and everyone liked me and I was friends with everyone that I would have had it somewhere, but I told her that I’ve always been so insecure that I’ve never even tried to talk to girls like that before...she then asked if she could tell me something really personal, too which I of course said sure, and she told me that she is a virgin too, I knew she wasn’t a hoe or anything like that but I always thought that the guy she dated for a couple months last year that they would’ve done it, but I guess not.
We had a really nice conversation, and I don’t know what came over me, but I asked if she wanted to go on like a real date sometime, like I come and bring flowers and we go to a nice restaurant and everything and she just smiled and said she’d like that. Then once we got back to her house she invited me in too say hello to her mom since I haven’t seen her parents in a while because they were on a trip, I went in and said hello and everything and she insisted I stay for dinner, so after a good home cooked meal, I sat there and listened to her parents talk about their vacation. I then said my goodbyes to her parents and brother since she was going out with friends for the night soon, she walked me out to her porch where she then asked me when I wanted to do that real date, I suggested Sunday and she said sure, and to get her at 6 ish, then she gave me a nice warm hug and a kiss on the cheek and just smiled, I said I better get going since her friends would be there soon and she once again told me to expect her dry cleaning bill and laughed.
So yea, I guess I got a date on Sunday, really ope I don’t fuck it up haha.
Also, I’m not the smartest person or best writer so I apologize if this was tough to read, I tried my best, thank you!
Edit: apparently people are ripping me for using the word “hoe”, I will not apologize for that...I don’t want a woman who’s been passed around many times, I don’t care if she’s a virgin or not, but I don’t want a sleazy woman.
