Trump defends tariffs, says USA 'was built' on taxing imports

In the latest development, Turkey announced Wednesday that it will increase tariffs on USA imports including rice, vehicles, alcohol, coal and cosmetics, in response to Trump's decision last Friday to double the tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminum.

China's government says it has filed a challenge to a USA tariff hike on solar panels in the World Trade Organization, adding to its sprawling trade dispute with President Donald Trump. At the same time, the European Union lodged its own WTO complaint in June against China's technology policies, which it said violated Beijing's free trade commitments.

According to a poll by Reuters, Chinese residents at the street level are largely unbothered by US President Trump's bluster and swapping of trade war rhetoric with China, though some mixed feelings on exactly how China should respond to the US. In addition to those tariffs, China is dissatisfied with the subsidies the United States provides to locally-made photovoltaics. USA officials say such action is necessary because the WTO lacks the capacity to deal with China's problematic trade methods. Only a fraction went to the United States, with India the biggest market. On the same day, Turkey's imposition of tariffs on 266.5 million dollars of USA goods took effect.

Tribute to Atal Bihari Vajpayee: Odisha Govt declares holiday tomorrow
Serving as prime minister briefly in 1996 then again from 1998 to 2004, Mr Vajpayee was admired even by prominent political foes. On the 72nd Independence Day, PM Modi had cited Vajpayee in his speech from the ramparts of the Red Fort.

The two governments have raised tariffs on billions of dollars of each other's goods. Brussels said in late July that it was considering tariffs on 20 billion dollars of US goods should Trump proceed with the proposed auto duties.

"As the USA measures severely damaged Chinese trade interests, China's choice to resort to the WTO dispute settlement mechanism is a necessary move to safeguard its legitimate rights and interests and multilateral trade rules", a spokesperson with the ministry said.

China lodged its challenge at the WTO on Tuesday, the statement said.
