From Morning Report, 8:25 am on 5 March 2018

But the suggestion is causing tense reactions from trading countries. New Zealand trade expert Charles Finny says the most concerning issue is the indirect impact of tariffs. Retaliation in other product areas could impact us as well, he tells Susie Ferguson.
