Trump claims tariffs on foreign nations will rescue United States steel industry

Lebanese businesspeople come to support of Turkish lira

The decision was triggered by the U.S. International Trade Commission delivering three separate sets of recommendations to Trump created to curb imports of solar components, ranging from quotas to a tariff on imports of 35 percent.

The Trump administration is due to impose similar increases on an additional $16 billion of Chinese imports on Tuesday.

China's "Request for Consultations" to the United States WTO delegation cites numerous issues with the United States' decision to impose tariffs, specifically as it pertains to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 and the Agreement on Safeguards.

Washington announced in January that it was imposing what it called safeguard tariffs over four years a 30 percent tariff in the first year which would be reduced gradually to 15 percent in the fourth year.

In their technology dispute, Washington imposed 25 percent duties on $34 billion of Chinese goods it said benefit from improper industrial policies.

Below is a review of the global trade spat so far this year.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday morning took to Twitter, as he often does, to lambaste some of his favourite targets: the U.S. Justice Department, the "rigged Russian witch hunt" (a.k.a. the Robert Mueller investigation), and of course, undocumented immigrants. There is division and confusion over how China should respond to Trump, with some arguing that Beijing should strike back at American interests but others saying they didn't know what could be done. The U.S. president has recently threatened more tariffs on Canada's auto industry. "He has yet to get any other countries to remove their tariffs or to remove his own tariffs", Chad Bown, a trade expert at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, wrote on Twitter. In July, the White House said the United States and European Union would "work together toward zero tariffs" and start an "executive working group" to hopefully reach a deal.
