The former head of the World Trade Organisation, Mike Moore, is urging world leaders to reason with US president Donald Trump over his plans to place punitive tariffs on steel and aluminium imports. Mr Moore led the WTO from 1999 to 2002. He told RNZ economics correspondent Patrick O'Meara that Mr Trump appears on course to trigger a full scale trade war that could lead to a global recession.
