U.S. trade conflicts with China are here to stay, and now, Wall Street is finally feeling it.

The markets opened sharply lower and remained down over a percent heading into 12 p.m. ET. 

In response to the recent downfall, Cramer said that at that this point, the $300 billion of additional threatened tariffs on Chinese goods is likely to happen. "Behind the scenes, President Trump is saying 'Listen up knuckleheads, how much do I have to tell you to get out of China," Cramer said.

"The president's using a number of 25% tariff, which is, which is going to happen, the 21% if it he believes is being paid for by the Chinese, by cutting their prices," he added.

While speaking with Action Alerts PLUS' Research Analyst Zev Fima, Cramer suggested investors seriously look at how exposed their portfolios are to China, as most investors might be more exposed than they realize.
