EU, Japan press US for tariffs exemption

Steelworkers are anxious that the big tariffs that President Donald Trump is imposing on imported steel and aluminum will cost them their livelihoods.

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

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop says the Federal Government will renew its call to be exempt from the Trump administration's steel and aluminium tariffs, given Mexico and Canada may be spared.

"We have to look at the internet because a lot of bad things are happening to young kids and young minds and their minds are being formed", he said.

If they drop their horrific barriers & tariffs on USA products going in, we will likewise drop ours. "Border trade empowers New Mexico's economy, and any change of our relationship with Mexico - because of tariffs or the renegotiation of NAFTA - must protect the thousands of working New Mexicans whose livelihoods depend on stable trade relations with Mexico".

President Donald Trump is reportedly considering CNBC analyst Larry Kudlow to replace newly-resigned chief economic adviser Gary Cohn - and CNN correspondent Jim Acosta has a theory as to why he was chosen.

The fight over tariffs comes amid intense turmoil in the West Wing, which has seen waves of departures and negative news stories that have left Trump increasingly isolated in the Oval Office, according to two senior officials speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal thinking.

The White House tariff announcement came ahead of a visit to Hamilton and other steel- and aluminum-producing cities that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is planning for Tuesday. The White House quickly shot down any exemption talk, saying that allowing a few exemptions would inevitably lead to more.

The tariffs aren't being imposed just as a "negotiation ploy" for updating NAFTA, Ross said. He pointed to the store's many products that rely on steel and aluminum.

"The European Union has chose to respond clearly to the USA measures and as the federal government we support this position", government spokesman Georg Streiter told a regular news conference.

It was not immediately clear whether the proclamation would list countries to be exempted as pressure grew for Trump to exclude USA allies from the action. When Sanders first announced that Trump would meet with people from the video game industry, the ESA said it had not received an invite.

"We must have a meaningful conversation about mental health issues and other possible cultural and societal contributors to violent behavior, such as violence in video games", she wrote.

U.S. President Donald Trump signs a presidential proclamation placing tariffs on aluminum imports and steel imports while surrounded by workers from the steel and aluminum industries at the White House in Washington, U.S. March 8, 2018.
