Steel Tariffs To Play Major Role At G20 Summit

  • Stormy G20 ends with gestures for Trump on climate, trade

Earlier this week, Abe and representatives of the European Union signed a political agreement for a trade deal that will cover more than a quarter of global economic output. Probably not. Given China's relatively small US market share, and the fact that anti-dumping and countervailing measures already apply to China, it is not clear what could be accomplished through new barriers to imports - unless they were applied to other steel exporters.

US steel prices are firm so far this week, holding onto their value despite the passing of the "deadline" for the Commerce Department's Section 232 investigation results last Friday.

The president won the White House partly by arguing that large multilateral trade deals had shattered the American economy, and he also has cast doubt on the existence of global warming and said the Paris accord would kill U.S.jobs.

But Trump has even contemplated pulling the United States out of the World Trade Organization itself. For example, U.S. Steel went up 8% in June.

Given the challenges confronting Presidents Trump and Xi at home and overseas, a more robust and comprehensive framework for relations that is capable of narrowing areas of difference and deepening cooperation in areas of common interests will best support the domestic agendas of both countries and the security and prosperity of the world.

On the sidelines of the G-20 Summit, Trump is scheduled to meet for the first time his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

President Trump hinted this week that his administration may move to protect the US steel industry from foreign competition, a maneuver popular with his base but likely to upset China ahead of a meeting of the world's largest economies this week.

In advance of the G-20 summit, Merkel and Trump discussed "global steel overcapacity" during a phone call on Monday.

US companies say that the Chinese steel boom is also due to unfair government subsidies and state ownership, which protects steel mills from market forces and causes them to produce much more steel than the world needs. The German leader pointedly noted that the other 19 of the group's 20 nation's agreed the climate change agreement was "irreversible".

In the span of just three days last week, the United States conducted a freedom-of-navigation operation in the South China Sea, announced new arms sales to Taiwan and sanctioned a Chinese bank in response to North Korea's nuclear program. Despite its suspension of coal imports from North Korea in February, Chinese trade with North Korea grew almost 40% in the first quarter of the year compared with 2016.

Israel to cut $1 million from United Nations to build museum in Hebron
Israel says the territory's fate, along with other core issues like security, should be resolved in negotiations. Jewish tradition claims that Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebecca, Jacob and Leah, are buried at the site.

A number of trade experts said it remains unclear whether Trump is simply threatening tariffs as a way to lure other countries to offer him concessions, or if he will follow through on new restrictions.

Yet in a sign of the difficulties ahead in satisfying Mr. Trump's demands, G-20 members wrangled for days to find a joint position on climate change in the aftermath of Mr. Trump's decision to discard the Paris agreement to curb global warming.

North Korea said it tested its first intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Tuesday and experts said it appeared to be of a type capable of hitting all of Alaska, prompting renewed US calls for global diplomatic action. European leaders hope the meeting between Trump and Putin does not mean a weakening of the USA position on the Ukraine question, more than three years after Russia's takeover of Crimea.

"That hurts us, but it also hurts the Americans", he added.

Now, the EU-Japan pact underscores the economic risks for the United States if it's bypassed in global economic pacts.
