a five percent if present all but one has promised this can be held at reports a group of countries have also vowed to buy it targeting china and the lesser quality steel u.s. president donald trump says is flooding the american market foreign steel brought into the united states will be slapped with a lid be of twenty five percent ten percent. ported to bring us jobs they did bring back was a major cap to steal boom in workers states like pennsylvania and michigan but trump when the house and well trump has singled out china it isn't even in the top ten among steel exports to the united states according to the u.s. commerce department it's canada that ranks number one as sixteen percent of all exports to the u.s. well china is that number eleven responsible for less than two percent of the steel
5:11 am
imported into the united states may find that they found the u.s. adopting anti-dumping anti subsidy tariffs in hundreds of cases of imported steel and aluminum products is to protect their domestic products of all countries imitate the u.s. approach then this would have a serious impact on the global trade order fears of a global trade war have sent world financial markets into uncertainty and on twitter trump defended his position arguing the trade wars are good and easy to win that trade war appears underway canada mexico china australia brazil and the european union are all threatening retaliatory measures against u.s. products this is not something we wanted to see and that we will continue to engage with all levels of the american administration in the coming days so that the understand that this proposal is unacceptable not sit idly while our industries which we've done for measures that put thousands of your paying jobs at risk the
5:12 am
e.u. the reaction from many and commensurately to defend our interests one of europe's largest appliance manufacturers electrolux says as a result of trump's announcement it is delaying an investment of more than two hundred fifty million dollars in the u.s. state of tennessee it appears that trumps tariffs designed to save american jobs in the industrial sector now putting other u.s. jobs at risk kimberley health kit al-jazeera washington. well sal feingold is an attorney and republican political strategist who joins us via skype from taipei good to have you with this one both of the impact on asians thin exports and well as your colleague just indicated the for some of the asian exporters their percentage of the u.s. steel import total is relatively small and in fact that's why we see the reaction from the governments or asian stock markets over the last few days after president
5:13 am
trump made this announcement is relatively muted we see a lot more vociferous reaction from the countries that are said large amounts to an often with government support that's canada and europe is that this is a misguided move given that it was primarily aimed at upsets in china well we have to keep in mind that there is a wide number of issues on the bilateral agenda between the united states and china whether it's the security issues like north korea or the numerous trade issues one thing we have to keep in mind is that chinese products broadly speaking enjoyed easy access to the u.s. market not just steel but across the entire product mix and this is something that president trump wants to address and he could just be starting out with we saw earlier on when we see jinping visited the united states in april of two thousand and seventeen very quickly china announced measures to allow us to troll products
5:14 am
to enter china more easily so there are broader issues at stake beyond these specific healing aluminum products sold but in this case it's going to as you say is going to cause more and europe in markets other markets other than asia and that in turn could backfire against very many american businesses. well it's true there are always people who benefit your people who might be hurt from this the europeans threatening to impose higher tariffs on harley davidson is this probably not an effective strategy that is not going to cause president trump to change his mind about imposing the steel tariffs all tamale what's going to happen is there's going to need to be a negotiation between the united states and european trading partners and in that negotiation the europeans or the canadians are going to have to address some of the other concerns that the u.s. has with access to those markets so we have to keep in mind the president truck might simply be using steel to gain leverage on other trade barriers and we
5:15 am
shouldn't dispute the fact that other countries do make it more difficult for u.s. products to enter than it is for their products to enter the united states and ultimately that is what upsets president trump so much ok well wonders how those negotiations are going to pan out though because as it stands you've got the u.k. saying it's still trying to seek clarity on what see this move is and when you look at the trump administration it seems that there isn't really any clear coherent policy across the administration on this as well. well certainly a lot of news reports and even statements from some u.s. administration officials indicate that there is not a unanimous view in the white house on this issue that's a fact however it seems pretty clear that the one person who has decision making authority president trump is going in the direction of announcing the imposition of these tariffs once that is announced and it could possibly come as early as next
5:16 am
week that is the policy and everything that we're seeing in the last few days about some are for it some are against it within the u.s. government will no longer be raul and at that point there will need to be negotiations between the u.s. and its major trading partners and like any negotiation there old have to be some give and take and again what president trump is seeking is a reduction in the trade barriers that impact u.s. products and during those countries markets well style feingold good speech hey thanks for joining us there from taipei thank you. president trump has repeatedly accused chinese firms of copyright theft that issue is at the heart of the current trade friction between china and the u.s. but chinese firms are fighting back in american courts and winning edge and brown reports. just over a decade ago this electrical components firm in eastern china faced an uncertain future it was being sued in a u.s. court over intellectual property rights the chinese company for the action
5:17 am
eventually able to prove that the plugs and other devices manufactured here were not copies the case lasted seven years chen whooshing the company's president told me he'd do it again if he had to. try american companies are using intellectual property rights as a tool to beat competitors from other countries the final go is to rule out on patters from the american market and the overtaxing was on the way shane warne is last us lawsuit in two thousand and ten by then he'd spent more than twenty million dollars in legal fees today he's become something of a celebrity in china's corporate world dispensing advice to other executives involved in similar legal battles as a target and pretty sure that this set a clear message and in lightened many chinese enterprises to deal with. with their
5:18 am
american competitors as china shifts the focus of its economy from heavy industry to innovation it's now clear that many of its companies are paying greater attention to intellectual property it is now something that is important to down the hallway. of these technology companies they're now fighting back they're fighting with apple or fighting with whoever it is that they believe is infringing on them so they're learning the rules of the game as it was taught to them. by the west and they're engaged in the process part of that process involves riches to trademarks they can show how innovative a country is twenty years ago china had none today it has more than one point three million including ones for the electrical devices made in china planned. and with chinese companies starting to grasp the importance of intellectual property the rule so prepared to defend those rights in a foreign kool aid to

5:24 am
still supports possibly raising the age to buy a gun from eighteen to twenty one in the united states but the white house said he is on the same page with the national rifle association which has opposed changes for years here and a spokesman for the n.r.a. has also said that they are they understand that the president will not be seeking to make major changes however the students in that florida shooting incident have raised a lot of pressure on congress to make change so there are bills being considered on capitol hill and this like every other of those twelve shooting so far this year will continue to add pressure. now powerful still hammering the northeastern united states has flooded streets grounded flights in whole to trains from maine to virginia and one point seven million properties are without power and at least one person has been killed
