Trump rolling out big trade tariffs, sparing Canada, Mexico

13 Mars 2018

Now, the president appears to have made his choice - prompting Mr. Cohn to resign and presenting his party with its own choice, one its congressional wing had badly hoped to avoid. A dozen White House officials including U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and Chief of Staff John Kelly were also present, along with McMaster, Mattis, and Haspel. "His Tariff Plan Reminds Them Why".

The UK's global trade secretary Liam Fox has announced that he will have a meeting with the White House next week in a bid to win an exemption from President Trump's trade tariffs. Jeff Merkley said Trump's plans "seem to be more about creating a talking point for the President than putting in place a thought-out strategy to grow American jobs and the American economy".

There have been mixed messages on when Trump will sign an order on the tariffs, with Trump suggesting it could happen later Thursday.

"He's seriously a globalist, there's no question", Trump continued.

As a matter of fact, Chung Eui-yong and Suh Hoon, the special envoys to the USA, were not initially scheduled to meet with President Trump on Thursday. Along with President Trump, we are optimistic of our continuing a diplomatic process to test the possibility of a peaceful resolution.

The company said it wants slab -- rectangular steel used to make coils and plates -- exempted from the tariffs, too.

Cohn has served in the Trump administration since the president was inaugurated in January a year ago.

His warped reasoning - that because the USA has trade imbalances with certain countries, they must be "cheating" us - misses a great deal, too.

Staffers have seen short-lists for vacancies and heard whispers of potential replacements for top jobs - but they hear little from the capricious President himself about what he is looking for in his second string.

Persuasive to like-minded Trump, perhaps, but not to many free-trade-loving Republicans.

"I think ultimately it can be good in the short term for steelworkers", said Assistant Professor of Economics at OSU Kyle Dempsey.

Yes. Canada and Mexico could lose the exemption - and be slapped with the tariffs - if negotiations to overhaul the North American Free Trade Agreement collapse.

Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., said Trump had listened to him and others who disagree with the direction of the trade policies.

"The biggest priority as a Congressman representing New Mexico is ensuring our local businesses are not adversely impacted by what the finalized package of tariffs includes and how it is applied", Pearce said.

The EU said it was prepared to respond to any tariffs with counter-measures against USA products such as Harley-Davidson motorcycles, Levi's jeans and bourbon.
