Trump's trade tariffs: Long on rhetoric, short on impact?

Trump's trade tariffs: Long on rhetoric, short on impact?

If that were to happen, cheese and motorcycles from Ryan's home state of Wisconsin could be the targets. Is there any sign yet, Scott, that this is impacting the president's plans, that the White House is listening?

Trump announced last week that he would seek to impose high tariffs on steel and aluminum of 25 percent and 10 percent, respectively.

European Union officials say the planned measures are fully compatible with World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules, but the bloc also plans to challenge Trump's national security justification for the tariffs at the WTO.

Trump ignited fears of a trade war and an outcry from major trading partners with his surprise announcement about the steel and aluminium tariffs, and an even broader threat to impose reciprocal tariffs on all imports from countries that impose duties on usa exports.

White House economic adviser Gary Cohn warned against penalizing USA allies and undercutting the economic benefits of Mr Trump's recent tax overhaul.

"I don't think so; I don't think you're gonna have a trade war, no", he said.

"Ahead of a bilateral meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the Oval Office on Monday, Trump told reporters that if the EU, for example, comes up with retaliatory measures, the US will tax European cars". Other companies dependent on steel and aluminum experienced losses as well. In effect, Mr. Trump's hissy fit on trade would help about 140,000 Americans employed in steel mills, while hurting the roughly 6.5 million Americans who work in steel-consuming industries.

The war of words between President Donald Trump and the European Union could lead to some serious pressure on the German auto industry, one expert told CNBC. The range of goods listed will disproportionately hit parts of the United States with strong manufacturing centers, including the Rust Belt and larger Midwest and Appalachia regions.

And more than five jobs would be lost for every one gained under the tariffs, according to the Washington, D.C. -based economic consulting firm. She says it's critical that Canada be exempt from these tariffs.

Trump has threatened a fine in dollars of "numbers that you hadn't even thought about" for China over the issue in a Reuters interview earlier this year, although the parameters of the investigation have not been disclosed and no date has been set for a decision.

So after several days of losses, Asian markets are rebounding with Japan's Nikkei jumping by nearly 2%. Hong Kong is up over 2%, with China's main markets gaining 1%.

"The new Fake News narrative is that there is CHAOS in the White House". By increasing costs for raw materials, those tariffs would also undercut the competitiveness of a broad swath of USA businesses, ironically making them more vulnerable to foreign competition. He believes Trump's latest reference to the treatment of USA farmers suggests he will resume his attacks on Canada's supply-managed dairy system.

"To the extent that we're successful in renegotiating NAFTA, those tariffs won't apply to Mexico and Canada", he told lawmakers.

In announcing the tariffs, Trump followed through on campaign promises to crack down on imports that he argues have decimated US manufacturing.

The tariffs will be made official in the next two weeks, White House officials said Monday. "We see ourselves as being an important part of the USA supply chain", he said.

Trump vowed last week to impose a 25 percent tariff on steel and 10 percent on aluminum imports to the USA, sending global markets into a dive that saw the sell-off of shares in companies producing those commodities. Trump's tweet was evidence of the president's willingness to double down when confronted by trade allies on his protectionist move.

But what is the cause of the USA trade deficit?

"But I've heard this administration say things", he said, "and not follow through".
