Trudeau says tariffs on steel and aluminum are 'insulting'

U.S. commerce secretary Wilbur Ross and vice premier Liu He did not issue a joint statement after they wrapped up two days of discussions.

If a threat is found, the Commerce Department will recommend tariffs and quotas to curb imports.

France's Le Maire opened the door to negotiations over US tariffs, but said the ball is in Trump's court.

The US president has said the tariffs are needed to protect US steel and aluminium industries vital to the nation's security. Last week, he delivered on the threat.

The news organization reports House Speaker Paul Ryan said there were better means to help American makers of steel and aluminum, and that he hopes to show Trump the other options. Depends on whom you ask.

Trump economic adviser Larry Kudlow described the tensions over trade as a family quarrel.

The United States has been singled out by some of its closest allies over the imposition of tariffs that they warn will undermine open trade and weaken confidence in the global economy. Supporters like to point out that tariffs can save jobs in certain industries, but often fail to point out the harm to consumers and job losses in other industries that result.

Steel industry executives, who met with Mr. Trudeau Monday afternoon, are also asking the Liberal government to throw up safeguards to block foreign steel diverted from the USA market from being redirected into Canada. Gross domestic product will decline by 0.1 percent.

Now listen, I may not know much about tariffs or trade or steel or aluminum or economics or really anything outside of how to hum every Led Zeppelin guitar solo, but I do know this: I've had it with Canada.

The rally in the stock market also proves that investors don't believe the G-7 has the power to influence the US decision to impose tariffs despite its expressed "concern and disappointment".

We won't need to impose tariffs on their steel and aluminum because we will just take it all for free.

Mexico announced penalties on USA imports like pork, fruit, cheese, and steel, while the European Union said it would announce its retaliatory measures in June.

Scott Homstead's business, Tri-Steel Manufacturing, is right in the middle of the trade war.

MPs called for even tougher retaliatory steps, with Labour MP John Mann suggesting the United Kingdom impose "golf tariffs" aimed at Trump's properties. "Don't blame Trump. Blame China, blame Europe, blame NAFTA, blame those who don't want reciprocal trading, tariff rates".

On Friday, the European Union launched a case with the World Trade Organisation on China's unfair technology transfers. It blamed China as the "root cause" of trade problems.

"At the end of the day, this is a trade dispute, and the president is going to defend this country, he stands for American workers, and he's standing up for them now", said Mr. Navarro.

According to Jim Bair, the head of the U.S. Apple Association, growers export about $1 billion worth of apples annually, roughly about 30 percent of the country's crop.

"The U.S. has been ripped off by other countries for years on Trade, time to get smart!" Then there is China's famous "Made in China 2025" initiative, a blueprint for transforming the country into an advanced technology powerhouse.
