The US has increased tariffs on Bombardier aircraft imports by 219%. A significant proportion of these are made in Northern Ireland by about 5,000 employees.
Theresa May 'bitterly disappointed' over Bombardier tariffs in Boeing feud

Boeing , a lobby receiving sympathetic hearing in the Trump administration, has been complaining re government subsidies ( to others) and demanding ( whatever else) 'a level playing field'.
The news seems not to have effected Bombardier's share price, and the tariff increases will be reviewed in February 2018. Jobs in Belfast are certainly at risk- no one has yet suggested the whole plant could go.

Boeing should be boycotted in retaliation.
