Could the trade war with China topple the US oil sanctions framework?

By ​Neil Bhatiya and Ashley Feng

Tariffs, retaliatory tariffs and currency fights, the US and China are locked in a trade war with massive consequences for the global economy.

What impact will this fight have on US crude oil exports and ongoing US sanctions on oil exports out of Iran and Venezuela? Could disputes over tariffs compel China to ignore US sanctions and continue to import barrels out of Iran and Venezuela?

On this week's podcast, Neil Bhatiya, an associate fellow, and Ashley Feng, a research associate, at the Center for a New American Security's energy, economics and security program answer these questions and more.
