Trump Slaps 30 Tariffs on Solar Panels imported from China
"The president’s action makes clear again that the Trump administration will always defend American workers, farmers, ranchers and businesses in this regard," he said.
For washers, the president approved a safeguard tariff-rate quota for three years starting with a 20 percent rate on the first 1.2 million units. A tariff of 18 percent will apply in the second year and 16 percent in the final year of action on washers from all countries except Canada. Imports after the first 1.2 million units will face a tariff of 50 percent in the first year and fall to 40 percent in the third year.
