Donald Trump Eyes Tariffs On Up To $60 Billion Chinese Goods

The Navy's new USS Little Rock arrives at the harbor in Buffalo N.Y. on Dec. 4. In imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports President Trump said the U.S. military should be as self-sufficient as possible

China now runs a $375 billion trade surplus with the US and Trump asked President Xi Xinping's economic advisers how to reduce this disparity during Xinping's recent visit.

President Donald Trump is seeking to impose tariffs on up to $60 billion of Chinese imports and will target the technology and telecommunications sectors. The report, citing two sources which had spoken with the Trump administration, dovetails with an article in Politico which described the president's insistence on big tariffs.

Fox will pursue a similar deal when he sits down for talks with US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

The tariffs will affect a wide range of products, including high-tech gadgets, food, furniture and beverages.

So far, though, Trump has shown more interest in trade war for its own sake than in actually helping USA companies compete. The reason behind the decision may be its competition in trade with China or a threat to national security, but the decision has impacted many countries across the world.

The data highlighted the relatively robust picture of China's and also the global economy - the latter is slated to grow this year by 3.9 per cent, according to the International Monetary Fund's forecast in January. Big Deficit. If not, we Tax Cars etc. GATT and WTO took as given the level of tariffs existing at the time.

It's about NAFTA, they say, arguing that the proposal is just tough talk and a brilliant bargaining tool in the ongoing talks to modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement.

China has already warned that it will take "strong measures" to protect its interests against the new tariffs.

Simmering political tensions roiled stocks and bonds across the globe on Wednesday, with US yield curves continuing to flatten and stock markets closing in the red as industrial companies took a beating. American farmers - many of whom have built whole business models around supplying soybeans, pork, and other staples to the Chinese market - will be especially vulnerable to retaliatory tariffs.

Announcement of new customs duties can happen next week. These gains have been enormous for everyone: The expansion of worldwide trade from 1980 to 2005 launched the greatest period of poverty reduction in world history, with a billion people moved out of abject poverty.

While trade negotiations are a way off, U.S. companies in the United Kingdom are facing up to the reality of Brexit, but Johnson says they're more at ease with the situation than they were even six months ago.

Donald Trump is no longer afraid of being president.

While that is not a lot for the economy as a whole, it would be painful for the individual industry.

Meanwhile, the tariffs would cost China only $689 million in trade losses, according to Bown's estimates, largely because the USA has already imposed duties on Chinese products. It also allows for an appeal process, granting some leeway for other allied countries and the European Union which has a huge steel industry spread across the vast trading block.

If, as expected, big action against China is announced, China will nearly certainly take equally strong retaliatory action.

Won't these tariffs hurt United States consumers and manufacturers? That would hurt producers but boost profits of construction and other industries in Southeast Asia.

The EU says that rather than impose tariffs on friendly nations, the USA should cooperate in trying to reduce a glut of steel and aluminum on global markets, which experts says is largely due to China's overproduction in recent years.

Nearly 90 percent of those polled said they were concerned that the tariffs would lead to a wider trade war as well as a third polled who are "very concerned".
