Trump takes aim at Canada as nations protest his tariffs

UK exports in 2017 by commodity

Her comments came one day after the U.S. President Trump announced the decision to levy tariff amid waves of criticism. "We look forward to continued negotiations, both with Canada and Mexico on the one hand, and with the European Commission on the other hand, because there are other issues that we also need to get resolved", U.S. commerce secretary Wilbur Ross said.

Morneau has called the tariffs "absurd", saying Canadian metal sales are no security risk to the U.S. He warns the measures will destroy jobs on both sides of the border.

"The U.S.is playing a unsafe game", Malmström told reporters".

Well, they have a $2 billion surplus on steel with us.

French President Emmanuel Macron said in a statement that he told Trump in a telephone call that the tariffs on European, Mexican and Canadian goods are illegal and a "mistake".

Allies including Canada and the European Union are threatening retaliatory tariffs.

Mnuchin rejected comments from some G7 officials that the United States was circumventing worldwide trade rules with the tariffs or ceding global economic leadership. "By people representing us who didn't have a clue", he said at the time.

Previously Brussels pledged to retaliate the United States protectionist steps with its own 25 percent tariffs on USA products, including motorcycles, jeans cigarettes, cranberry juice and peanut butter. The issue about tariffs being slapped on the European Union creates a problem.

Europe hit back at the USA after President Donald Trump slapped tough tariffs on European steel and aluminium earlier this week.

An error-strewn game from Serena saw her broken at 3-3, but she broke right back and held to love consolidating at 5-3. "I feel like a warrior wearing it, a queen from Wakanda [a reference to the Black Panther movie] maybe", she said.

China's exports have mushroomed since joining the World Trade Organisation in 2001, making it the world's second-largest economy.

"We regret that our common work together at the level of the G7 has been put at risk by the decisions taken by the American administration on trade and on tariffs", he said. "It is totally unacceptable that a country is imposing unilateral measures when it comes to world trade".

On Thursday, the USA announced tariffs of 25% on steel and 10% on aluminium from Canada and others, from Friday. The countries had been granted a temporary exemption from the tariffs introduced by the White House on March 1.

Already under fire for his combative trade policies, President Donald Trump on Friday intensified pressure on Canada, demanding that America's neighbor and close ally "open their markets and take down trade barriers".

"It is not every day that a Canadian head of government pointedly notes that he is dealing with a U.S. administration that is short on common sense" or "that a prime minister uses a news conference to dig in his heels in a trade negotiation", she noted. Canada unveiled a package of counter-tariffs on United States imports valued at Can$16.6 billion (US$12.8 billion).

"I had to highlight that there was no possibility of any Canadian prime minister signing a NAFTA deal that included a five year sunset clause, and obviously the visit didn't happen", Trudeau said Thursday.

The British leader, who has sought to underscore the trans-Atlantic special relationship, said Friday she was "deeply disappointed" by the Trump administration's decision.

The EU plans to tax things like whiskey and Harley motorcycles as it strikes back at the US.
