Trump trade row: EU condemns US tariff plans

Trump took to Twitter to blame the deficit on "bad policies & leadership" from his White House predecessors.

The lawmakers went on to recommend that Trump exclude fairly traded products and products that do not pose a national security threat; announce a process for U.S. companies to petition for duty-free access to imports unavailable from U.S. sources; and allow exemptions for existing contracts for steel and aluminum purchases.

A 10 percent aluminum tariff would increase the cost of a plane by about 1.2 percent if all of the aluminum is imported. Unemployment is down; the stock market is up; and the economic signs are mostly healthy.

The tariffs are expected to impose a duty of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum imports that Trump says undermine U.S. industry with their low prices.

"I think the tariffs are a big mistake".

Trade adviser Peter Navarro told Charles V. Payne on Fox Business Wednesday night that Canada and Mexico would be excluded, but implied that whether it stays that way depends on renegotiating NAFTA.

The head of the influential U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Tom Donohue, warned about the impact to the economy. There is steel and aluminium, which is going to affect mainly the European Union (EU), Mexico and Canada, of the latter two more in a bit. From moving our embassy to Jerusalem to pulling out of the Paris climate agreement, Trump is a president who does what he promises.

The U.S. deficit with China hit a record $375 billion last year.

Cohn has been the principal voice of the globalist, pro-trade bloc in the inner circle of Trump and his exit emboldens the protectionist group that the President instinctively favours. "And that is what we must stop".

There has been an intense 11th-hour debate within the U.S. administration over how to design the policy. His company is dependent on specialized steel from abroad, and on electric motors from China that he can purchase no place else.

European Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström said the bloc is considering new tariffs on products including orange juice, bourbon, denim, cranberries, peanut butter and motorcycles.

Trump is a different kind of president - unpredictable and often vindictive, but that is no reason for India to take a pusillanimous stand. The worst is likely to happen anyway, hugs and telephone calls notwithstanding.

Behind the scenes, a full-court, 11th-hour diplomatic press was underway Wednesday.

The New York lawmaker says, "Mr. President, focus on China".

Warsh was a member of the board of governors for the Federal Reserve from 2006 to 2011.

Ross told reporters Wednesday: "The president indicated that if we can work something out with Canada and Mexico they will be exempted". "The Chinese, in an attempt to accelerate their industrialization in decades past, they built massive capacity to make steel and that's true, that's a fact".

Trump's top economic advisor Gary Cohn resigned Tuesday over the decision to impose the tariffs.

The January and February figures were the lowest monthly totals in four years, reflecting a tigher domestic market as the government ramps up its effort to curb outdated, excess capacity, as well as rising domestic demand. They are made to the company's specifications.

However, according to The Wall Street Journal, at the White House yesterday, aides began preparations for the ceremony ushering in a turn in trade policy that could recalibrate relations between the US and its allies and trading partners.

Economy Minister Brigitte Zypries said Wednesday, the EU will "be ready to react appropriately".

EU industry commissioner Elzbieta Bienkowska, who is visiting Australia, said it was important to send a strong message supporting trade liberalisation. Malmström said the EU has serious doubts about that rationale, describing the metal tariffs as "an economic safeguard measure in disguise".
