Volvo Fears for Future of Global Trade as U.S. Plant Opens - Bloomberg
When Volvo Car Group broke ground on its first U.S. assembly plant in 2015, it was a proof point in the Swedish automaker’s rebound and global expansion, not a chess move in anticipation of a possible trade war.

When It Comes to Trade Whirlpool Tries To Have Its Cake And Eat It Too - Forbes
Samsung is building a washing machine factory in Newberry County, South Carolina. The plant is nearing completion, 250 workers have already been hired, sometime in 2018 the plant will have 500 workers producing washers and possibly other appliances, and eventually nearly 1000 workers will be employed there. LG is just beginning work on a plant in Clarkesville, Tennessee, so soon both major importers will be manufacturing some of their washing machines in the U.S., creating jobs for several thousand Americans.

If Whirlpool's foreign competitors are already in the process of moving some of their manufacturing footprint to the U.S., why is a trade action needed?

Why are companies moving to the Southeast? They want proximity to their customers, German consul says - The Greenville News
For two years, Detlev Ruenger, consul general of the Federal Republican of Germany, wondered why companies kept putting a footprint in the Southeast...Wages are lower in the Southeast, he said. The time difference is better for companies calling back to their native Germany compared to locations on the West Coast, and, in particular, South Carolina is a right-to-work state, though it can be a concern to some given Germany’s strong union presence, he said.
