Swiss file WTO case against Trump tariffs
Switzerland filed a complaint Monday with the World Trade Organization (WTO) against the United States over the tariffs imposed by the Trump administration on steel and aluminum imports. Swiss companies exported about $80 million in steel and aluminum products to the U.S. in 2017, according to a government statement. Switzerland is just the latest country to file a lawsuit against the United States over the tariffs, joining the European Union, among others. Other countries have taken steps to retaliate against U.S. exports, prompting fears of a wider trade war.
