SA unable to avoid trade war — EDITORIAL

Donald Trump

Trump's latest action is a particular embarrassment to the prime minister, who spent significant political capital in 2017 getting close to the president in the hope that she could secure a post-Brexit trade deal with the U.S.

"It is entirely inappropriate to view any trade with Canada as a national security threat to the United States".

British Prime Minister Theresa May shared her own "deep concerns" with Trump directly in a phone call on Sunday. "This has been in the air for some time".

CAR's Dudenhöffer focused on US consumers, who he said would be angry if the cost of their new car rose by 10 to 20 percent.

Simcoa, based in Bunbury in the South West, employs 180 and indirectly supports another 600 within the region. He is reported to be planning new tariffs of 25% on steel imports and 10% on aluminium imports. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) agree China is an economic aggressor, he argued Trump's tariffs will do nothing to rein them in. He says Trump is "letting China off the hook".

Trump's message on Saturday continued to levy direct attacks at U.S. allies and some of the world's largest economies.

The US Department of Commerce has imposed a 51.28% extra import tariff on Simcoa Operations Pty Ltd because of alleged dumping. Mr. Juncker of the #european union also expressed his displeasure warning the EU would retaliate by imposing more duties on American traders in the region.

"They agreed it was a humanitarian catastrophe, and that the overwhelming responsibility for the heart-breaking human suffering lay with the Syrian regime and Russia, as the regime's main backer", Downing Street added.

But the White House says that's unlikely.

Despite the harsh words, both Mr. Navarro and Mr. Ross indicated there might still be room to avoid a worldwide trade brawl.

Riley FBR managing director Art Hogan, Nuveen chief investment strategist Brian Nick and Exencial Wealth Advisors CIO Tim Courtney discuss the markets, which are paring losses that were triggered by President Trump's announcement of plans to implement U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum.

Many of our trade policies are built on the assumption that congressmen would tend to seek protection for local businesses, while presidents would fight for the national interest in open trade.

CNN's Jake Tapper asked him to imagine how Canada will see this: "From the perspective of Canada". If you exempt Canada, then you have to put big, big tariffs on everybody else. President Trump has been saying for years that something needs to be done here.

But Trump is undeterred.

Ross is dismissing the fallout from potential retaliation by the European Union.

Trump had tweeted on Friday that trade wars are good and "easy to win," roiling US financial markets.

Few issues could blur the lines of partisanship in Trump-era Washington. None of those Republicans supported Donald Trump's positions on trade.

Richard Warren, head of policy at UK Steel, said he hoped the metal tariffs did not apply to the UK and accused Mr Trump of "short-termism" and protectionism, adding there would be unintended consequences for global trade and steel users in the US.

Trade politics often cut along regional, rather than ideological, lines.

Simcoa, Australia's only silicon producer, could be the first victim of the beginning of a trade war. "Gary and I get along very well, and we agree on more things than we disagree".
