U.S. stock benchmarks opened solidly lower Tuesday, extending a decline from a day ago, as investors fretted about U.S.-China trade tensions, following confirmation by Trump officials of a plan to raise duties on China imports to 25% from 10% by Friday.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 204 points, or 0.8%, at 26,233, the S&P 500 index declined 0.6% to 2,913, while the Nasdaq Composite Index retreated by 0.8% to 8,055.

On Monday, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said the U.S. has seen "an erosion in commitments by China" in recent days, with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin accusing Chinese officials of reneging on pledges made during their negotiations. The comments appeared to support remarks that President Donald Trump made over the weekend about the state of U.S.-China trade talks. Still, China's top negotiator Liu He is expected to attend this week's negotiations in Washington, supporting hope that an accord can still be reached.
