sambrook. rock and religion clash that brings many polls to late. model to really suit your reconcilable the budget the devil movie and the rocket. storage june 17th t w. donald trump is showing off his gold to move again the u.s. president slapping tariffs on mexican imports in an attempt to curb the illegal immigration look at the latest from our course also coming up washington's trade war with china is escalating but it's still unclear who has the upper hand and this is the youth of north from acetone preparing for their locational futures and these are the jobs that they want to. come to the program u.s.
president has announced he will add a 5 percent tariff to all goods coming in from mexico as a way to curb illegal immigration at the u.s. southern border the levee could rise to 25 percent in october mr trump mexican authorities to do more to combat illegal entries to the united states this comes just after mexico's president. said his country will start ratifying a major trade deal with the united states and canada it is unclear yet how. will affect the united states mexico canada agreement. let's get more on this story clifford business here in the studio financial correspondent ali bart's in frankfurt clifford let me start with you this announcement came quite as a surprise particularly to the mexicans tell us more you know well surprise is the
word there we where our attention is very much on china and the u.s. china trade war and then suddenly buying here comes this news about mexico i think if anything it shows that donald trump is a monster of disruption only to you in frankfurt asian stocks retreated substantially this morning and things in europe don't really look better. no they don't and shares are going down pretty well across the board and it's probably no surprise to hear that export shares are among the worst here and the dax in frankfurt where there are a lot of those on the ticket you see v.w. di miller b.m.w. auto supplier continental under pressure but basically almost all the shares losing and investors seeking safe havens again like treasuries from the united states are european sovereign bonds especially german bonds because they're nervous. back to you here in the studio the united states is mexico's biggest trading partner now
obviously this is a politically motivated move by donald trump but one of the economic implications well as you say it's a pretty motivated move but the economic ramifications are enormous it's such a close relationship and such a close trading relationship mexican officials are furious about there's we're still trying to see exactly how this will play out but it's left it's left the mexicans in a very difficult place for they have to start dealing with these increased power of clifford conan and thanks to you both for now we'll come back to you in a moment in the meantime the german chancellor has long been a favor a favor and speaking out for free trade and multilateral cooperation during a speech at harvard university on thursday i'm going to medical took a swipe at the u.s. president and his protectionist policies without calling donald trump by name here's what the german chancellor said well dixon is most protectionism in trade
conflicts jeopardize free international trade and thus the very foundations of our prosperity more than ever we must think and act multilaterally instead of unilaterally. start not soon the global rather than national. there's also that is it that sin is to shout out to it looking rather than isolationist. german chancellor angela merkel speaking there clifford let me come back to you with so much disruption and potential disruption in global supply chains it's not only companies in the united states and mexico and china or europe for that matter who are getting increasingly nervous yeah i think you know countries like vietnam which is profited from the u.s. china trade conflict even germany as we've just seen a lot of countries are going to be looking at this and thinking this is almost like an attack on the global supply chain and a lot of the things that people have taken for granted in global trade for
a long time they can no longer take these things for granted i'm looking at all kinds of destruction and only bards in frankfurt what else are investors preparing themselves for while they're preparing themselves for a possible recession and also possible positive reaction from the central banks in addressing the need to boil up the economies but to want to contest i spoke to also had an interesting theory he says donald trump will continue this way until the economy really goes downhill and the markets go downhill and until there is a democratic candidate he has to face then he will want to be a figure as a deal maker to make things better and then the the direction could be a totally different one an analysis from one economist an interesting take though i think he was in frankfurt and clifford coonan here in the studio thanks to you both . certainly the biggest threats to global trade is the dispute that the united states and china the world's 2 top economies have been locked in just this
month 3 s. ramped up tariffs on chinese products in china quickly retaliated with its own terrorists which will kick in on june 1st and just weeks ago the 2 sides seem close to a deal but now china and the u.s. are digging in. the trade wars escalating and the message donald trump wants out there is that the u.s. is winning. doing very well with china we'll see what happens but i can tell you john you know very much wants to make a deal because the companies are leaving china to avoid this carol china is becoming a very weekend day. in the battle of wills between the world's 2 economic powerhouses trump is confidence china will seek a deal on his terms but beefed up by decades of growth and modernization china is convinced it can hold out far from rolling over the reaction has been defiant don't
