More than 3,500 American companies, including the giants dand Coca-Cola, Disney, Tesla, Ford or Abbott Pharmacy, manufacturer of tests to detect COVID-19, They have been harmed by the protectionist policies of the US President, Donald Trump, and for this reason they have filed a lawsuit against his Government before the United States Court of International Trade (USCIT), as reported this Tuesday by the Spanish digital portal Information.

The report maintains that the avalanche of lawsuits by multinationals and small US companies against the Trump Executive is due to the millions of dollars in tariffs that these companies must disburse in the framework of the White House trade dispute with China.

In the cases brought before the aforementioned federal court, located in New York City, it is argued that the new tariffs on Chinese imports raise the cost of machinery, parts and intermediate supplies for US companies and assembly lines, notes the information text.

The cases have accelerated, he continues, also because the legal window that allows local companies to file appeals against some of the rates imposed by the US Administration against Chinese products imported into the US is about to expire.

The report stresses that any company that wins the legal battle must receive a refund of all accrued tariffs, which would force the US government to disburse a significant amount of money.

The Executive, for its part, has asked the USCIT to suspend most cases and only accept one or a few that can be extrapolated to similar demands.

The demands could be separated into two lists: one that asks for the 25% duty drawback on $ 200 billion worth of imports and a second that Demands 7.5% lien reimbursement on $ 120 billion of property.

In June 2018, the US Administration imposed tariffs of 25% on Chinese exports worth 50 billion dollars, and in September of the same year it imposed another 10%, a percentage that was increased to 25% in May 2019 to other exports from the Asian giant, worth 200 billion dollars.

Washington imposed tariffs on China (this country responded with similar tariffs to US products) alleging bad practices of the Asian country in terms of technology transfer and intellectual property.
