President Donald J. Trump’s War on the Rest of the World


Today Mr. Trump announced that he would impose tariffs on imports of aluminum and steel.  He has stated that he would commence the tariffs next week.  He plans to claim that he is doing so as a matter of national security, which would be a loophole in the World Trade Organization rules.

This action is potentially the beginning of a trade war in which NAFTA may be the ultimate casualty and the global economy may be collateral damage.
