U.S., China Trade Spat Affects Foil Imports

As the U.S. and China go toe-to-toe in a trade spat, the fight has found its way into American kitchens. The quarrel has impacted a common household item...aluminum foil. The Department of Commerce recently leveled heavy duties on Chinese aluminum foil imports. Political experts say the move could play well with President Trump’s base of working class voters. In 2016, Chinese aluminum foil imports were valued at around 389 million dollars.
