EUA-China, cold war 21st century
The international diary was tensioned by the Trump administration's measures as regards tariffs on Chinese products.
It all in December 2016, at the beginning of his mandate, when the president of the United States proclaimed his goal to put "America First" (America above all).
US uses a tariffs policy against Chinese imports and is attempting to do it same with those from Mexico.
Globalisation does not respect borders. Donald Trump knows this well, although in their proclamations and tweets, he prioritizes nationalisms.
The problem is that the expectations were actually met. The growth of the Chinese economy was exponential.
The global economy is one step closer to full trade war if the United States puts its threat into action to impose tariffs on the rest of imports.
It is no coincidence that Trump is imposing these protectionist measures abruptly, but is part of a series of more general sequence of events.
Until a few decades ago it had been the main producer of both industrial inputs, but the growth of other countries, particularly China, was displacing it from that position.
Trump is quite concerned that Chinese companies acquire technological leadership.
