European Union initiates dispute with United States at WTO

04 June 2018

Washington cited national security reasons for the tariffs.

"The United States has been taken advantage of for many decades on trade", Trump said in a statement.

Trudeau said he could not accept a five-year sunset clause that Vice President Mike Pence demanded in a phone call to keep the North American Free Trade Agreement alive.

He affirmed that President Trump would attend the G7 next week in Canada.

Trump's decision had already drawn furious responses from Canada's Trudeau, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron. It is the top buyer of USA aluminum and the second-biggest buyer of US steel, Guajardo's ministry said. "By people representing us who didn't have a clue", he said at the time. "From the beaches of Normandy to the mountains of Afghanistan, we have fought and died together", Trudeau told moderator Chuck Todd.

Trudeau stated that the tariffs would remain in place unless the USA removed its own set of tariffs.

"We talked about how hard this was going to be in terms of a turning point in the Canada-U.S. relationship", Trudeau noted.

"The U.S. now leaves us with no choice but to proceed with a [World Trade Organization] dispute settlement case and with the imposition of additional duties on a number of imports from the U.S. We will defend the Union's interests, in full compliance with global trade law", Juncker said in a statement.

"It started as politics and that's exactly where we still are, waiting around to see what is going to be enough for Donald Trump to say: 'I got what I wanted'".

The worldwide response to the action was swift.

Morneau said the steel and aluminum tariffs would not help ongoing trade talks between the two countries and would only harm both economies.

"The United State (sic) will agree to a fair deal, or there will be no deal at all". "The impacts of the disputes have been limited so far, but the economic and political costs will go up as retaliation by trading partners begins in earnest". "It's not that we can't talk just because there's tariffs", he said.

Trump's antagonistic trade policies - and specifically the steel and aluminum tariffs - drew worldwide denunciation. It's illegal. It's immoral.

During a conference call early Thursday, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross played down the divisions.

Comedian and late show host Jimmy Kimmel spoke out in Roseanne's defence, telling people to back off and have some compassion. It's not a one time joke, OK. "I can't let myself cave in tho", she added.

"It all depends on how the various parties react to the circumstances".

British Prime Minister Theresa May said she was "deeply disappointed" and reiterated a call for Britain and the European Union to be "permanently exempted" from the "unjustified" metals tariffs.

Ms Malmstrom accused Mr Trump of "playing a risky game" as she confirmed the European Union would be taking "proportionate and measured" action against the US.

"I think we should all be insulted".

Second, we need to understand the nature of trade.

"These tariffs are hitting the wrong target", added House Ways and Means Committee chairman Kevin Brady, saying Europe, Mexico and Canada "are not the problem - China is".
