After World War II, none of America's competitors or Allies of competitors such as Germany, Japan, or the Soviet Union reached 60% of US GDP, with China being the only exception. The great rejuvenation of China are seen by the United States as a huge threat to its global dominance. China is rapidly emerging as a global superpower to rival the United States, which undoubtedly poses a great threat and challenge to America's world leadership. On August 14, 2017, President Trump directed the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) to determine whether Chinese laws, policies, or actions have the potential to harm U.S. intellectual property, innovation, or technological development. On 22 March 2018, the White House released the Presidential Memorandum on Actions Related to the U.S. 301 Investigation, in which the Trump administration accused China of using foreign ownership restrictions to demand or force US companies to transfer technology to China in order to acquire cutting-edge technology. The Trump administration says China seeks to challenge American influence and wealth, seeks to erode American security and prosperity, and uses technology, propaganda and coercion to shape a hostile world. Based on the results of the investigation, the US government imposed 25% retaliatory tariffs on Chinese imports to the US from July 6, 2018, marking the official start of the trade war between China and the US.
