US President Donald Trump on August 24 at the Republican party Congress said that if elected for a second term, he will continue to impose duties on goods from other countries.
“We will impose duties against those who behave dishonestly with us [in trade], ” Trump was quoted as saying by Interfax .
He noted that if foreign countries impose trade duties against the United States, then Washington will take mirror measures in response.
Earlier in the day, Republicans officially nominated Trump for a second term. The US presidential election will take place on November 3.
In July, it was reported that the US government was considering imposing duties on goods from France due to Paris’s intention to impose taxes on a number of US digital platforms.
Trump pledged in June to introduce new customs duties for the EU and China if Brussels and Beijing did not abolish customs duties on American lobsters.
