Sources: Trump regime to take trade action against China

Source: Politico

“The Trump administration is preparing to take action against China over trade as soon as this week, two administration officials familiar with the issue told POLITICO. President Donald Trump will soon call on U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to open an investigation against China under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 for violations of U.S. intellectual property rights and forced technology transfers. As POLITICO reported earlier this week, senior Trump aides held a series of high-level meetings in recent days to finalize the decision, which is the culmination of three months of regular huddles on trade.” (08/01/17)
