Trump is signing order Tuesday which will put tariffs of up to 50 per cent on imported washing machines and 40 per cent on solar panels
Move will boost domestic manufacturers Whirlpool and General Electric which have accused rivals Samsung and LG of dumping products in the U.S.
Quarter of all washing machines are imported, including Sears own brand offerings, and Samsung predicted 'everyone will pay more with fewer choices'
South Korea accused U.S. of breaching World Trade Organization rules and European Union said it would hit back if its exports were affected
Tough on trade measure comes before Trump visits Davos with White House promising he will deliver 'America First' message to CEOs and billionaires
