Liam Fox Blasts Trump's 'Protectionism' Over Steel

Liam Fox Blasts Trump's 'Protectionism' Over Steel

It represents an apparent breakdown in Trudeau's efforts to find common ground with the tough-talking president.

The CBI warned the move would "damage prosperity on both sides of the Atlantic". They also need to look strong at home, which means they're unlikely to cave to Trump's bullying.

House Speaker Paul Ryan and several leading Republicans in Congress were critical of the administration's tariff action. When asked about any concerns related to the G7, Trudeau said Canada would "continue to highlight that working together as friends and allies is extremely important for the prosper advertise process prosperity to each of our citizens". "These are two different countries".

A statement from Mexico's economy ministry says the USA use of a national security justification is improper and that the tariffs affect strategic sectors for North America, including automotive, aerospace and electronics.

Late Thursday, U.S. President Donald Trump sent a very sharp warning - directed at Trudeau - over the pending the NAFTA negotiation.

The tensions between the United States and its European allies have been on the rise as that Trump administration has announced that it will slap new tariffs on steel and aluminum produced by three of the country's biggest trading partners - Canada, Mexico, and the European Union, all of which have vowed to retaliate.

USA manufactures warned the Trump administration that imposing tariffs on the EU, Canada and Mexico "places American manufactures directly in harm's way".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pledged Friday to work with Canadian companies hit by punishing USA tariffs to protect jobs and workers north of the border, but offered no details about what that might mean as the bilateral trade war continued to escalate.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross had called for more talks, but the EU's Malmstrom said the bloc's position had been that it would not negotiate unless "You take this gun away from us".

Canada, Mexico and Europe had been exempted until June 1 from import duties of 25 per cent on steel and 10 per cent on aluminum when they were first imposed in March.

"This is a very strong Canadian action in response to a very bad USA decision".

French President Emmanuel Macron called the move illegal. "The European Union can not react to that without any kind of reaction". "It's irrational", Beatty said in an interview.

Ross himself heads to Beijing on Friday where he will attempt to get firm deals to export more USA goods in a bid to cut America's $375 billion trade deficit with China. Mexico said it would penalize USA imports including pork bellies, apples, grapes, cheeses and flat steel, as well as cranberries.

After the US action, the European Union announced plans to bring its case against the USA tariffs to the WTO on Friday. "Mexico has stated repeatedly that this type of measure, based on national security, is neither appropriate nor justified".

"It all depends on how the various parties react to the circumstances".

The Trump administration argues the tariffs are necessary to tackle overcapacity that is damaging United States steel manufacturers.

This morning, Mexico announced tariffs on USA goods in retaliation while the European Union promised to do the same.

"I believe the real challenge on NAFTA will be Mexico".

LONDON - Theresa May has been criticised for refusing to stand up to Donald Trump after she opted not to join the leaders of other western countries in speaking out against the President's decision to impose hefty tariffs on exports to the US.
