What you need to know about the growing trade war

An escalating multi-front trade dispute between the U.S. and many of its biggest trading partners is moving the country closer to a global trade war.

The problems began in March when the U.S launched its first round of tariffs. Subsequent rounds, hitting products made in Canada, Mexico, the EU and China, have been met by equal penalties on U.S. products. Yet the U.S. shows no sign of backing down and is now threatening to impose a new round of tariffs on China.
