Given that USA has a trade deficit of Dollars 500 billion per annum, Trump asked a plan for targeting USD 100 billion Chinese imports.
While complaints about China's abuse of intellectual property rights are not confined to the United States, Trump's global steel and aluminum tariffs announced last week under section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 complicate US efforts to recruit allies to put pressure on China. He was to also visit three Canadian steel cities this week to reassure workers.

Trudeau said the surplus of steel in the global market is not new and with American tariffs in place, some countries might try to ship to the USA through Canada.
Prior to announcing the exemption, Trump said he would lift the tariffs off of Canada and Mexico only if a new NAFTA deal were signed.
Mr Trump said on Saturday the United States was "working very quickly on a security agreement" so as not to impose the tariffs on "our ally, the great nation of Australia". "We will continue working toward securing a definite and permanent exemption from those tariffs", Trudeau said earlier.
Trudeau accused China of flooding global markets with cheap steel on Monday, saying Canada has already taken steps to prevent "dumping".

WASHINGTON/BEIJING- U.S. President Donald Trump is seeking to impose tariffs on up to US$60 billion of Chinese imports and will target the technology and telecommunications sectors, two people who had discussed the issue with the Trump administration said on Tuesday. "If anyone starts throwing stones, it's better first to make sure he's not living in a glass house", European Commission spokesman Enrico Brivio said. Turnbull also said he would not join any moves by the European Union to bring a complaint to the World Trade Organisation over the tariffs.
The European Union urged the United States on Wednesday to revive trade talks rather than escalate a dispute over tariffs on metals and cars. We're asking our readers what role - if any - tariffs should play in today's global trade.

A third source who had direct knowledge of the administration's thinking said the tariffs, associated with a "Section 301" intellectual property investigation, under the 1974 U.S. Trade Act begun in August past year, could come "in the very near future".
