EU Slaps Reprisal Tariffs On $3.4 Billion In U.S. Goods”

On April 17, 2018, China announce a 178.6 per cent import tariff on sorghum, of which it imported more than $800 million from the U.S. in 2017 and on June 15, 2018 President Trump imposed tariffs on about $50 billion worth of imports from China as justification for alleged Beijing's longstanding theft of USA companies' intellectual property.

The swift decline this week is due to the Trump administration threatening to impose an additional $200 billion in tariffs following Beijing's retaliatory measures.

A former White House trade adviser says Trump "has been so belligerent that it becomes nearly impossible for democratically elected leaders - or even a non-democratic leader like [Chinese President] Xi Jinping - to appear to kowtow and give in".

Concerns over trade war between the world's leading economies have resulted in wide swings in the global financial and commodity market.
