The Background to the US-China Trade War

Recent tensions between the US and China began on President Trump’s campaign trail in 2016, when he set out his plan to tackle the trade deficit through tariffs and stricter enforcement on subsidies, dumping and intellectual property rights. This became a major plank of Trump’s foreign and economic policy, with the tit-for-tat retaliation on tariffs causing major implications for markets during his time in office.

On his inauguration, President Biden reaffirmed that the US would continue to take a similarly tough stance on Beijing, with increased focus on the technology sector and US chip stocks.
