TOKYO - Japan s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has warned the U.S that higher tariff on auto imports would backfire and harm not only America s jobs and economy but also devastate the global economy.
Abe told a news conference marking the end of a Diet session Friday that Japan s auto and auto parts industry has never threatened America s national security and never will. Abe said he will keep explaining that to Trump.
Trump has ordered the U.S. government to investigate if higher tariffs on foreign-made vehicles and auto parts are justified on national security grounds.
