U.S. imposes steel and aluminum tariffs against Mexico, Canada, and the E.U.
Despite talks that NAFTA partners would be exempt from the metals import tariffs, the U.S. imposed a 25 percent import duty in the case of Europe, and 10 percent for Mexico and Canada. Mexico’s Economy Minister already announced that Mexico will impose tariffs of approximately $4 billion. Some of the products include pork legs, apples, grapes, cheese, and steel. Canada will also impose retaliatory tariffs worth $12.8 billion including whiskey, orange juice, and other food products.
