Trump ties Mexico tariffs to migration - The US-China trade war threatens supply chains - Qatar's workplace window-dressing
The US strategy of bringing nations to their knees with tariffs isn't new. But it has only succeeded in the past with the support of allies, DW's Frank Sieren writes.
Donald Trump has ramped up his trade dispute with China. Nevertheless, Beijing has a good shot at being able to keep the damage under control. The key is a dynamic middle class, says DW's Frank Sieren.
Global trade tensions have been brewing for months with tariffs and counter-tariffs flying between the US, China and several other countries. The US government has now challenged some of the tariffs at WTO level.
The latest US salvo against China has escalated the threat of a trade war between the world's two largest economies. China has responded by announcing countermeasures affecting up to $60 billion worth of US exports.
