Mr Mnuchin's support of legislation restricting Chinese investments that imperil the US's national security is among his highest priorities, a Treasury spokesman said Tuesday.
Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland, pressed about a Washington Post report that the White House was considering additional economic penalties against Canada, told reporters that Ottawa was unaware of any such move. In response, Trump joked to Trudeau: "Didn't you guys burn down the White House?" The allies themselves are planning to push back, both by imposing countervailing tariffs and by presenting a united front against the president's policies at the Group of 7 summit beginning Friday in Canada. The House proposal goes as far as to single out China among a proposed group of hostile nations whose companies could undergo extra scrutiny for national security risks if they seek to buy stakes in U.S. corporations.
Despite the G7's efforts to coax the Trump administration away from a go-it-alone approach, some analysts now question whether Washington remains committed to basic policies that have upheld the post-World War Two worldwide economic system. As Treasury chief, Mr Mnuchin is chair of CFIUS.
The analysis, reportedly from the White House Council of Economic Advisers, has not be circulated publicly.
Trump late last month announced that tariffs on US$50 billion worth of Chinese imports will be finalised by June 15 with investment restrictions due by June 30 and that both measures will be implemented shortly after those deadlines. Mr. Trump is exploiting a "national security" loophole in worldwide trade law to justify his tariffs, and global tribunals may have little choice but to defer to his sovereign determination in this regard, even if it's not in good faith.
Even President Donald Trump's own economic team thinks the president's new trade policies are likely to hurt the United States economy.
