Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump has reiterated his plans to construct a wall on the border between the US and Mexico, in a bid to stop undocumented immigrants. Trump emphasized that, while the wall will be paid for by the US, the costs will then be reimbursed by the government of Mexico

Tariff or subsidies is all the same the playing field is not level by any means pick the commodity some country is manipulating the price.No Rest Farm":11csklcx said:Every time I hear tariff talk I really cring. Tariffs could really hurt the farming community. We export high quality goods and import junk, anything that depresses this will hurt our bottom line.
China's commerce ministry accused America's car industry of "dumping and subsidising", thereby causing substantial damage to China's domestic car industry. From Thursday, levies will be charged on larger-engined cars from several manufacturers, some being European firms with factories in the US.
General Motors faces the greatest impact, almost 22% extra on some sports utility vehicles (SUVs) and other cars with engine capacities above 2.5 litres. Chrysler faces a 15% penalty, while a 2% levy will be imposed on BMW, whose US plants make many of the cars it exports to China.
Existing taxes and duties already push up the cost of US imports by 25%, and the new levies make it even more expensive for Chinese consumers to buy American. The move was swiftly attacked in the US. Carl Levin, the Democratic senator for Michigan (which includes the motor city of Detroit), called it an "unjustified" attempt to circumvent international trade laws. "Instead of ending its unlawful trade practices, China is choosing to take further steps that are unauthorised by world trade rules," he claimed."The livelihoods of American families and the integrity of global trade law are at stake."
