Trump May Roll Out Probe Into China and Intellectual Property Theft

At the same time, it could alienate China's leadership, which is urging the Trump administration to limit its confrontational language as it faces off against the regime in Pyongyang. If an investigation begins, the U.S. government could seek remedies either through the World Trade Organization or outside of it. "But if China helps us, I feel a lot differently toward trade - a lot differently toward trade".

Mr Trump's threat to investigate China's IP and trade practices is valid, but his administration may not be up to the delicate task of carrying out a new China probe without sparking a damaging trade war, USA business lobbyists said. "They know how I feel", Mr Trump told reporters last Thursday.

Trump will direct US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to determine if an investigation is warranted of "any of China's laws, policies, practices or actions that may be unreasonable or discriminatory, and that may be harming American intellectual property, innovation and technology", the official said. The Chinese policies of an American company to enter into a join venture with a Chinese company to do business is "not fair", the official said.

USA and European companies have long complained of Chinese rules that force them to turn over their industrial secrets if they wish to do business in China.

In an editorial on Saturday, North Korea's Minju Joson newspaper said that the US "finds itself in an ever worsening dilemma, being thrown into the grip of extreme security unrest by the DPRK".

Trump, now on a 17-day working summer vacation at his golf resort in New Jersey, is returning to the White House for a day on Monday to sign this executive order directing the US Trade Representative to probe the matter.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says he will do everything he can to protect the Japanese people as tensions escalate over North Korean plans to send missiles flying over Japan toward Guam.

Fearing that Taiwan could be hit by retaliatory actions by Washington if it finds forced technology transfers or intellectual property theft by China, Bureau of Foreign Trade Director-General Yang Jen-ni (楊珍妮) said Sunday the agency will carefully assess the situation as soon as U.S. President Donald Trump orders the probe. In April, he said he wouldn't label China a currency manipulator, in return for help in dealing with North Korea.

They added that the trade measure would be carried out under the rules of global law and would not trigger greater conflict with China. "Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet. they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk". This past week, Trump said he could soften his views on trade if China stepped up its assistance, leading to speculation that the investigation could be a negotiating tactic.

Trump has requested similar inquiries on trade, but the reports haven't been delivered on deadline.

"Trump looks forward to seeing Xi in China later this year, a meeting that will be a very historic event".

Similarly, the president also asked for a review about whether steel and aluminium imports were jeopardizing national security.
