How big of an economic threat are Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs?

He said other countries could be spared the tariffs if they can convince the USA government that their steel and aluminium exports do not threaten American industry.

Experts say Canada could be the country hit hardest by the tariffs.

The EU's top trade official, Cecilia Malmstroem, responded Monday by charging that trade was being used "as a weapon to threaten and intimidate us". Based on the fact that there are few parts necessary for the upkeep of a vehicle that do not contain significant amounts of steel and aluminum, this action will have a significant negative impact throughout the supply chain, including many medium and small businesses and their employees that comprise the auto care industry.

"The European Union, wonderful countries who treat the USA very badly on trade, are complaining about the tariffs on Steel & Aluminum".

Other countries may also ultimately be excluded. He said that most of Canada's pulse crop exports will not be affected by the tariffs set forth by India.

However, they expect any talks about a possible permanent exemption to take place outside of the North American Free Trade Agreement negotiations.

Malmstroem fired back at Trump after holding fruitless talks in Brussels on Saturday with US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer aimed at defusing the row and avoiding an all-out trade war.

"Dialogue is always the prime option for the EU", European Commission spokesman Enrico Brivio said at a news briefing on Monday. "If anyone starts throwing stones, it is better first to make sure you're not living in a glass house", he added.
