Alberta signs letter to US President Donald Trump opposing steel tariffs

Hope Hicks

Joni Ernst and Rep. David Young, both Republicans, signed on to a letter last week urging Trump to reconsider the new tariffs on steel and aluminum.

Second District Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins, also a Republican, said she was glad that Canada and Mexico were exempted from the tariffs, but said she wished the president had narrowed the order to punish only those countries that she described as "bad actors".

Analysis by chief foreign correspondent Philip WilliamsSo are we or are we not?

Shares in China's steel and aluminium makers fell on Friday morning.

Our government had pretty much given up on hopes we may be given a ticket of leave.

Musk continued to lay out his frustration with the current trade relationship, pointing out a significant disparity in the import duties each country places on the other nation's cars.

"This is violent, isn't it?" said Trump to attendees of the meeting, according to The Washington Post, which included an exec from Take-Two and suits from The Entertainment Association, which supports USA video game publishers. But it's a very long shot indeed. The president said he would introduce tariffs of 25 per cent on imported steel and 10pc on aluminum, figures that sent minor shock-waves through the stock market. "I don't think we should be going against the president before we see what the deal is".

"There are potential carve-outs for Mexico and Canada based on national security, and possibly other countries as well based on that process".

The steel industry was responsible for almost seven million tonnes of cargo, including raw materials, in and out of Hamilton's port a year ago - the largest category of cargo by far. We'll be doing something with some other countries, he said.

The people briefed on the plans said all countries affected by the tariffs would be invited to negotiate with the Trump administration to be exempted from the tariffs if they can address the threat their exports pose to us manufacturers.

And the European Union vowed to retaliate, drawing up a list of 100 USA brands to target should Mr Trump start a trade war.

Confirmation of the trip came on the heels of a lawsuit filed against California by the U.S. Department of Justice challenging a trio of state laws that offer protections to people living in the country illegally.

The EU, which has prepared countermeasures on some €2.8bn of USA imports, has warned that it will not tolerate any moves by the U.S. to negotiate special treatment with the United Kingdom or other individual EU countries. "We were able to mutually agree across party lines that ... we should take a strong stance against these tariffs", Sucha said. There will be responses. "And then you go the further step, and that's the movies". Trump tweeted that he spoke with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, saying they are "discussing opening up Japan to much better trade with the U.S. now have a massive $100 Billion Trade Deficit".
