8:01 pm
and the program our top story china is warning the u.s. that any agreement between the two will be off if donald trump goes ahead with his threatened tariffs u.s. commerce secretary wilbur ross held trade talks in beijing with chinese leaders earlier in the day he praised his meetings with china's vice premier as friendly and frank despite the two countries threatening to attack tariffs on goods worth up to one hundred fifty billion dollars each so live to john hendren now in washington and it looks like the chinese are refusing to back down john. no compromise on either side merriam president trump has been dispatching trade representatives around the world trying to make a better deal for the u.s. and he's been really focused on the trade deficit and there's a huge one between the u.s. and china
8:02 pm
a lot of economists would say he's too focused on the trade deficit and the logic goes like this i've got a trade deficit with the macy's department store because i buy from them and they don't buy anything for me but in the end we both get something out of value of value out of that relationship in the same way when china gives the u.s. cheap steel people in the u.s. benefit and when the u.s. sets tariffs on that cheap steel that may benefit the u.s. competitors who are making steel here but it does not benefit it hurts the automakers and others who are using all of that steel drives up prices and there are a lot more of them so there are critics of this approach nevertheless wilbur ross was sent there and told to take down the trade deficit which is now about three hundred seventy five billion dollars trying to get it down by two hundred billion the chinese said no and then ross said we are going to the u.s. is going to renew tariffs about twenty five percent on some fifty billion dollars worth of chinese electronics goods comes at a time when china has this china twenty twenty five policy where they were by their
8:03 pm
trying to make more of their own domestic electronics by the year two thousand and twenty five so it's trying to hurt china we're really gets them so that went badly wrong when home empty handed there was no deal with china and meanwhile steve nugent the treasury secretary was dispatched to canada to talk to g seven members ahead of a big meeting this week they were all irate at us tariffs on steel and aluminum the guy who was perhaps most irate among them was justin trudeau the host and prime minister of canada this is what he had to say today on american television. first of all we're putting the same kinds of tariffs exactly on on steel and aluminum coming from the united states into canada to be directly reciprocal but we are also putting a number of tariffs on consumer goods finished products for which canadians have easy alternatives one of the either made in canada or made from another partner
8:04 pm
with the tariffs one of the truths about tariffs is they drive up costs for consumers and on top of that these tariffs are going to be hurting american workers and canadian worker the idea that we are somehow a national security threat to the united states is quite frankly insulting and unacceptable insulting in unexceptable are strong words in diplomatic language and you heard justin trudeau there saying that canada was prepared to levy tariffs on a number of products coming out of u.s. that is in addition to european planned sanctions on such iconic american goods as levi's jeans kentucky bourbon florida oranges and those are picked to be in places that are republican states states that donald trump wants in the midterm elections later this year so his party can retain control of congress whether there's all get sorted out in the coming days of the g. seven meeting we will find out in a matter of days should be interesting meeting thank you very much john hendren and
