The US will impose a 25 percent tariff on steel imports and 10 percent tariff on aluminum imports next week, President Donald Trump has announced.
“We’re gonna build our steel industry back. We’re gonna build our aluminum industry back,” Trump said in a White House listening session with industry executives on Thursday. He cited the success of the recently imposed tariffs on solar panels and washing machines.
“I don’t blame other countries” for taking advantage of bad trade deals made by the US, Trump said.
