On Monday, U.S. President Donald Trump said he would push for a “reciprocal tax” against countries, including U.S. allies, that levy tariffs on American products. Officials, though, did not provide details on how such a tax would be structured or what goods it would apply to.
During his populist 2016 presidential campaign, Republican Trump railed at countries that had trade surpluses “taking advantage of the United States.” He revisited the theme on Monday. Trump told reporters at a White House event to announce a proposed infrastructure plan, “We cannot continue to let people come into our country and rob us blind and charge us tremendous tariffs and taxes and we charge them nothing.”
