Trump tries to end the special trade treatment for India
In a letter to Congress, Trump signaled his intention to remove India from a program that gives developing countries easier access to US markets. The Indian Government "has not assured the United States that it will provide fair and reasonable access to the markets of India," the letter said. In January, he sought 150 percent India's import tariff for whiskey.
On the weekend, Trump shook India as a "high-cost" country.
Now he moves to take India from a preferential trade program, the Generalized System of Preferences, which reduces US export duties to 121 developing countries. India is the largest beneficiary of the program in 2017, according to data from the United States.
