"I think we should be taking (Trump's) threat at face value and prepare for an attempt to issue tariffs", said Flavio Volpe, president of the Automotive Parts Manufacturer's Association.
Trump went on to threaten further tariffs against Canada and accused Trudeau of making false statements.

However, Navarro says he used inappropriate language in trying to convey that message.
"Justin probably didn't know that Air Force has about 20 televisions", Trump said.
Peter Navarro is President Donald Trump's National Trade Council adviser. He also said Canada "will not be pushed around".
The communique - which had appeared to have papered over the cracks that surfaced at the summit - said the leaders of the US, Canada, Britain, France, Italy, Germany and Japan agreed on the need for "free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade" and the importance of fighting protectionism.
