New tariff front & role of the WTO

The US and China continue to trade blows as tensions ramp up amid negotiations. Greg Swenson of Brigg MacAdam breaks down how the situation in Hong Kong has had an impact on the talks, and the new trade front that the Trump administration has opened up. Plus, as China and Russia continue to face heat from the US, the two nations have teamed up yet again, this time on a major energy project. RT correspondent Sara Montes de Oca helps us understand the project, and the implications it could have for power development in Asia. The WTO has come under fire from groups across the political spectrum for decades, but just what exactly is the role of the organization? And how do they affect trade across nations? Lori Wallach of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch brings us up to speed on the moves of the mysterious giant.
