Trade is a two way lane. If there is high volume of traffic on either side of the lane, the repercussions are to be suffered by everyone.

This was in order to take vengeance for the upcoming French tax that were to be imposed on Silicon Valley’s big companies.
US calls the tariff rates as a “National security threat. When the economy is at stake, then this battle between two countries give birth to a state of affairs wherein the dignity of the common people remains a perpetual struggle.
