Trump You don't have a country without steel

U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan on Monday urged the Trump administration not to move forward on new tariffs on steel and aluminum announced last week, citing the risks to the economy. White House trade adviser Peter Navarro told CNN Sunday that no country will be excluded from the tariffs. "But, I think the smarter way to go is to make it more surgical and more targeted".

'So, we're doing tariffs on steel, ' Trump said.

Not coincidentally, this would also fulfill a major campaign promise to blue-collar workers to bring back numerous industrial jobs lost to foreign imports over the last few decades.

Top American allies, including Canada and the European Union, have pledged to retaliate if Trump follows through on the plan.

Trump said the measures were necessary to balance global trade deficits.

The stock market drop reflected a bigger concern: a possible "trade war" if other countries hit by the tariffs impose tariffs in retaliation, sparking a back-and-forth of rising tariffs that hurt the growth of economies.
