It could deploy measures against US multinational companies operating in China such as consumer boycotts.
The experts said that problems go beyond the failure to conclude the WTO's stalled Doha round, launched in 2001, with some national policies distorting trade and threatening to undermine the system. Mr Trump himself threatened to take action against the WTO earlier this month after Axios, a news service, reported that his administration had drafted legislation to withdraw the USA from the organisation, a move the president repeatedly told advisers he was considering. We hope that the two sides will step up communication and expand cooperation. "It is a matter of principle", he said.
A public hearing on the latest proposal, to be held at the Washington, D.C. offices of the US International Trade Commission, is scheduled for August 20.
The current system necessitates global cooperative and multilateral solutions, she said.

Why is China going to the WTO? "They can increasingly conduct economic policy themselves".
Hua pointed out that China had recently released a white paper, "China and the World Trade Organization".
Indeed, the president of the European Economic and Social Committee, Luca Jahier, while deploring United States tariff measures as divisive, told the South China Morning Post that existing rules and institutions both need improving.
China Consul General to Los Angeles Zhang Ping said Thursday that advocates of a trade war should "know that a trade war is not something that can easily be won". The expedition to China would take place before the end of the year. Trump's approach deserves more time to win concessions on important issues such as China's treatment of USA intellectual property, Burgum said.
China's efforts in abiding by the WTO rules and fulfilling its commitments have gained worldwide recognition.
The United States told the WTO last week that a "reckoning" over China's unfair trade policies is urgent and is too big for the WTO to handle.

The campaign is the latest sign of how Democrats believe the impacts of Trump's trade moves on particular industries could resonate with voters in key states.
"China will continue to abide by WTO rules".
