It’s hard to figure out why two countries so wedded to each other, economically, would do this to each other, but after Obama’s tarriffs on Chinese goods, this news can’t be that surprising.

His confirmation comes after the American Automotive Policy Council said U.S. officials had informed automakers about the probe.
