Steel Tariffs in US Could Cost US Steelworkers Their Jobs

Like most Senate Republicans, Roberts strongly opposes Trump's impending decision to impose new tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminum imports.

The EU is also maintaining a threat of counter-measures that would target US imports ranging from maize to motorcycles, and may publish its list next week to allow industry and other interested parties to give their input.

Trump suggested there would be good news just around the corner for a renegotiated NAFTA - a trade deal he has consistently dissed as bad for America.

"We won't drive the economy to over 3 per cent growth or continue to create jobs if we go down this path", the head of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Tom Donohue, said in a statement.

The seventh round of NAFTA talks between the three involved nations concluded in Mexico Monday.

Both Mexico and Canada are among the main suppliers of steel to the US.

Though economists, fact-checkers and even members of Trump's own party have called the president's global trade analysis into question, inventor and Tesla chief executive Elon Musk appears to agree (in part) with Trump.

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.

Thursday's announcement from the White House that it would slap levies on imports of the key metals was met with anger from major trading partners like China, Japan and the EU.

Coffman was one of House members who signed a letter to the president Wednesday asking him to use tariffs to address specific trade imbalances, instead of sweeping action, such as he took Thursday.

Rep. Steve Pearce, a Republican also running for governor, said he'd try to ensure the tariffs don't hurt the state. Baoshan Iron & Steel was down 3.5 percent by 0014 GMT, while Hesteel and Beijing Shougang were down more than 1 percent. This despite fierce protests from trading partners and even collective concern from members of the Republican party who claim the measures would weaken the competitiveness of USA industries.

Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, a Republican, said he plans to introduce legislation next week to nullify the tariffs though he has acknowledged that finding the votes to stop the president's actions could be hard.

Louisiana economists have warned that such tariffs, while meant to bring jobs back to disadvantaged US producers of aluminum and steel, would threaten the viability of industrial projects throughout the state by raising construction costs.
