U.S. Steel And Aluminum Tariffs Are 'Illegal,' EU Trade Commissioner Says

After U.S. tariffs on imports of European steel and aluminum took effect Friday morning, the EU's top trade commissioner called them "illegal" and a classic case of protectionism.

The EU plans to make its case to the World Trade Organization.

"We will now trigger a dispute settlement case at the WTO, since the U.S. measures on steel and aluminum clearly go against agreed international rules," Cecilia Malmström, Europe's top trade commissioner, said at a news conference on Friday, shortly after the U.S. tariffs — 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum — took effect.
But, since when do FASCIST REGIME HEADS care anything about "law"? Roll Eyes   :rolleyes:

    Trump finally did the one thing that will drive powerful Republicans away

    As president, Donald Trump has insulted US allies and top Republicans, threatened nuclear war on Twitter, shared top-secret intelligence with Russia, and pushed immigration policies that are ripping apart families and damaging the US’s image abroad.

    A bill that kills Trump’s trade tariffs

    This afternoon, a bipartisan group of senators introduced a new bill that takes away Trump’s right to pass tariffs on products that the Department of Commerce deem important to national security. The bill would require any intended tariffs to be approved by Congress. It would also be retroactive for the past two years—meaning it could rescind last month’s controversial steel and aluminum tariffs.

    The bill is sponsored by Republicans and frequent Trump critics Jeff Flake of Arizona and Bob Corker of Tennessee. It also includes four other GOP senators (and four Democrats). The tariffs will be bad for US business, and US jobs, they say, echoing recent analysis by economists.

    Imposing tariffs “under the false pretense of ‘national security’ weakens our economy, our credibility with other nations, and invites retaliation,” said Pat Toomey, the Pennsylvania Republican who voted with Trump 91.4% of the time.

    “These kinds of tariffs are a big mistake, and using national security as an excuse is a bigger mistake,” said Lamar Alexander, the Republican from Tennessee, who has voted in support of Trump more than 94% of the time in the past.” Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican who has voted with Trump nearly 92% of the time, said Congress should assert “its constitutional authorities on tariffs to ensure we don’t undermine the significant economic progress we have made over the last 18 months.”

    Why China 'holds all the aces' in a full-blown US-China trade war

    * The Trump administration announced on Friday it will impose a 25 percent tariff on up to $50 billion in Chinese goods in an effort to protect U.S. intellectual property and technology.

    * China in retaliation said it will introduce taxation measures of the same scale and strength.

    * The objective is to reduce the size of the U.S.--China trade deficit from an estimated $370 billion to $200 billion by 2020.

    * The administration says these alleged IP appropriations along with corporate espionage have cost the U.S. economy between $225 to $600 billion a year.

    * While this may hurt China in the short-term, it has other markets to sell to in Asia and elsewhere.

    China's Economy Facts and Effect on the U.S. Economy - How Much China Really Affects the U.S. Economy

    China's economy produced $23.12 trillion in 2017, based on purchasing power parity. It's the world's largest economy. The European Union is second, at $19.9 trillion. The United States fell to third place, producing $19.3 trillion.

    China is the largest foreign holder of U.S. Treasurys. In March 2018, China owned $1.19 trillion in Treasurys. That's 19 percent of the public debt held by foreign countries. The U.S. debt to China is lower than the record-high of $1.3 trillion held in November 2013.

    China buys U.S. debt to support the value of the dollar. This is because China pegs its currency, the yuan, to the U.S. dollar. It devalues the currency when needed to keep its export prices competitive.

    China's role as America's largest banker gives it leverage. For example, China threatens to sell part of its holdings whenever the United States pressures it to raise the yuan's value. Since 2005, China raised the yuan's value by 33 percent against the dollar. Between 2014 and 2016, the dollar's strength increased by 25 percent. The rise forced China to devalue the yuan. This ensured its exports would remain competitively priced with those from Asian countries that hadn't tied their currency to the dollar.

    Golly, it seems DJT and his FRIGHTIES had no clue as to just how complicated and costly a trade war would get for the U.S.

    We need to export goods and services to the WORLD... but DJT has pissed-off every trading partner we had. We need them far more than they need us, period!

    One of Trump's most destructive traits is an unwillingness to look at the big picture. His actions will have real consequences.

    Ivanka Trump’s fashion and homewares business received initial approval from the Chinese government for five trademark applications days before her father announced a U-turn in policy on ZTE, a Chinese telecoms firm that has admitted breaking US sanctions on Iran and North Korea.

    Chinese trademark documents detailing the approvals were made public by Citizens for Ethics and Responsibility in Washington (Crew), a watchdog group. The group said the first daughter and White House adviser, who represents the US at diplomatic events, already held more than a dozen trademarks in China and multiple pending applications. Donald Trump holds more than 100 trademarks in China.

    I truthfully believe that was his only real motivation for going after the Presidency in the first place. Trump knew he'd be able to loot the nation and get away with it. He certainly didn't want to be a good, or even a barely acceptable, public servent.

    All of the EU’s anti-Trump tariffs

    The US trade war with the world is well underway. In retaliation for Washington’s levy of duties on aluminum and steel from the European Union, the 28-country trading bloc has now imposed a plethora of tariffs on hundreds of US goods.

    Here is a look at all 340 products affected, divided into two lengthy lists. The first shows the American exports that will face extra tariffs to retaliate against US duties on “carbon and alloy” products. The second includes the remaining aluminum and steel products.

    Anti,
    Nice job on your research,
    If you try taking your Liberal blinders off and read this you just might learn something.
    And don't worry it's not an attack on liberalism as yours are on President Trump, and it does bring to light many of the theories contained in your links.
    And this is written by those experts who are in the business and make their living by doing and not just teaching and writing books. They are not just some pencil headed geek from some university or wet behind the ears news reported.
    See: https://www.investopedia.com/terms/t/tariff.asp
    Please make note of this which is rarely mentioned when discussing tariffs.

    Pawn asks Karl to take his blinders off because he has something to teach him.

    He then attacks teachers and writers.

    Next he attacks "geeks" at Universities. He is not clear whether it's students or teachers who are the objects of his ire. I will assume both.

    Then he attacks reporters of the news who he describes as "wet behind the ears."

    Following that, he asks Karl to make a note of something 'rare' that is coming next…..

    What follows is a statement to explain to us a term that "who make their living by doing" (and most people with an elementary school education I might add) already know.

    I'm not going to engage someone (Pawn) with whom there is no reasoning. Republicans and Democrats in Congress; Economic Experts; business folks and many ordinary Americans think DJT's actions are a mistake (putting it mildly).

    To be sure... there will be opinions from both sides, but one of those sides will be WRONG.

    Personally, I think DJT and the ultra-wealthy will make out like bandits (most hold many different assets in many different nations), while the average American will be royally screwed. However; I'm not posting here to debate, I am making observations (citing sources) and everyone can decide for themselves (or not). That said:

    President Trump's new tariffs are not only alienating US allies and trade partners, but undermining America’s own future prospects.

    On Monday, US President Donald Trump threatened to impose a new 10 percent tariff on $200 billion of Chinese goods. That will not only re-escalate the trade war with China but contribute to new risks of collateral damage to the US economy.

    And make no mistake: While China is the first target; the next ones will include some of the largest trading economies in Europe, East Asia and Americas.

    US tech giants will not be immune

    US semiconductor chipmakers, including as Intel and Qualcomm, generate $15 billion each in annual revenue in China. The two are amid a great unease as US government is considering tariffs on chips imported from China, which has a critical place in their supply chains.

    China using tariffs to target Trump's base: report

    A leaked propaganda notice from the Chinese government states that the country is using to tariffs to try to disrupt and split President Trump’s base, Business Insider reported on Tuesday.

    The notice, leaked and published by the China Digital Times, which monitors media censorship in China, states the tariffs are meant to split “apart different domestic groups in US.”

    “We stop negotiation for now, acting tit for tat, roll out corresponding policies, hold public opinion at a good level without escalating it, limit scope, and strike accurately and carefully, splitting apart different domestic groups in US,” the propaganda notice reads.

    “The trade conflict is really a war against China’s rise, to see who has the greater stamina,” the document continues. "This is absolutely no time for irresolution or reticence.”

    The document also directs media to not report on comments from Trump or other officials, adding that outlets shouldn’t “attack Trump’s vulgarity; don’t make this a war of insults.”

    Experts have warned that the Chinese tariffs could be used to specifically target Trump supporters, particularly with tariffs on goods like soybeans and sorghum. The crops are produced largely in areas that backed Trump in the 2016 election.
    Why not just rescind DJT and Ivanka's "chinese trademarks" and then get on with the trade war!

    FACT:
    Personally, I don't care about the woes of AUTOMAKERS, they back this FASCIST REGIME. The reality is, though, for American Car Buyers... the vast majority have NOTHING left (from the TAX CUT WINDFALL for th wealthiest) which might have gone toward a new or newer vehicle. Drops in supply + increases in costs of materials = prices are going to soar.

    I don't buy NEW vehicles (and I haven't had a car payment in decades). I buy used vehicles, pay cash, and drive 'em for at least 5 (and as much as 20) years. However; everyone that you know who is panning on a new vehicle purchase: be sure to thank a ****ING FRIGHTIE the next time that you personally encounter one... then punch their lights out (no need to shoot or kill them... if arrested, just claim that you were "standing your ground"! ROTF   :rotf:

    You're doing a hell of a job, DJT! Is now a good time to become a VEGAN, or are YOU just hoarding MEAT for your long stay in prison?!

    Billions of pounds of meat in U.S stockpiles amid slowing overseas sales

    More than 2.5 billion pounds of meat from beef to pork and poultry are being stockpiled in cold-storage warehouses across the country amid going trade disputes with the U.S. largest meat exports, reports the Wall Street Journal, citing federal data set to release as early as Monday.

    The details: While domestic consumers' demand for meat has increased, it not enough to keep up with record production of hogs and chickens, forcing industry increasingly reply on exports, the report notes. This would drive-down prices for American consumers, restaurants and retailers. But dwindling foreign exports will threaten profits for meat manufacturers, and the report adds that some hog farmers have already started scaling back their operations.

    Then he attacks reporters of the news who he describes as "wet behind the ears."

    Following that, he asks Karl to make a note of something 'rare' that is coming next…..

    What follows is a statement to explain to us a term that "who make their living by doing" (and most people with an elementary school education I might add) already know.

    When anyone says to shut up and listen to them...you just might learn something...it's 100% certain they have nothing to teach.
