The trade wars erupted when the U.S. imposed global tariffs on steel and aluminum to protect national security and higher duties on more than 1,300 goods from China in response to intellectual property rights violations and trade secret theft. China struck back with tariff hikes on 128 goods from the U.S., while others have threatened similar measures or filed cases at the World Trade Organization.
