Mixed method approach was adopted i-e qualitative data was gathered by conducting panel discussion with different professors and quantitative data was gathered from articles, newspapers, WTO, World Bank, WITS and MIT.edu databases. The accumulated qualitative data was analysed through content analysis; excel was used for the quantitative data analysis. Results indicate that evolving tariffs war is a hidden tactic to contaminate “Made in China 2025” industrial revolution Policy, because it’s a major hurdle against Trump’s wish of making America again super manufacturing power. In fact, China has become a super manufacturing power by upgrading in its technological sector. Moreover, tit for tat tariffs war has reverberated the entire global economy badly. Chinese rapid growth and innovative plan, higher trade deficit between China and the United States, technological development, leading manufacturing capability, foreign investment amiable environment and proper industrial plan “Made in China, 2025” are the main trigger points for the United States.
