Sources with Reuters say Trump is eyeing tariffs on China that would hit at least $60 billion worth of their annual cheap, imported goods in the U.S.

"The European Union, wonderful countries who treat the USA very badly on trade, are complaining about the tariffs on Steel & Aluminum".

Tusk said it was not too late to turn this around and asked Trump to come through on his promise to exempt "real friends" from the tariffs.

In Beijing, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said Sino-U.S. trade relations should not be a zero-sum game, and that the two countries should use "constructive" means to manage tension.

The trans-Atlantic rift over Trump's tariffs was evident in the European Union legislature in Strasbourg, France, where parties of just about all persuasions lined up to criticize the USA plans. A "Made in America" comeback would revive the manufacturing industry we've slowly been losing to other countries and boost the economy and workforce. Affected users of imported steel and aluminum products may want to consider the utility and viability of seeking product exclusions for their imports. That would hurt producers but boost profits of construction and other industries in Southeast Asia.

The United States is expected to invoke a national security exception to WTO rules in imposing import tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum announced by Trump last week.

The US attempt to unleash a trade war on China creates a unsafe precedent which could undermine the very principle of free trade, Huang Weiping, professor at the People's University of China, warns. In my view, United States negotiators will use the threat of imposing the tariffs on Chinese producers as a way to persuade China's government to abandon the policy of "voluntary" technology transfers.
