Trump, Canada's Trudeau discussed trade, NAFTA in call: White House

Trump's move on steel and aluminium may spark global trade retaliation Trump: Planned Steel, Aluminum Tariffs Will Go Away if New NAFTA Deal

The president did say there's a possibility of exempting neighbors Canada and Mexico if they're willing to negotiate a better deal for the U.S. in discussions on the North American Free Trade Agreement or NAFTA.

Trump's Monday tweets are part of an ongoing effort to pressure Mexico and Canada in renegotiating NAFTA, one of Trump's principal campaign promises.

He insisted that it must be made more fair and threatened to end NAFTA if he doesn't get a better deal. More steel imports come from our allies - Canada, Japan and South Korea.

" We see the world economy in probably the strongest shape it has been since 2010".

"What we're encouraging the administration to do is to focus on what is clearly a legitimate problem and to be more surgical in its approach so we can go after the true abusers without creating any kind of unintended consequences or collateral damage", Ryan said.

And as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has rightly observed, such tariffs simply make no sense in North America's highly integrated economy, especially in areas such as the auto sector.

Meanwhile, Bloomberg reports that sources say White House Economic Advisor Gary Cohn, who opposes the tariffs, wants executives from American companies that rely on aluminum and steel to meet this week with the president.

"It'll be for a long period of time", the president said about the proposed tariffs, which he said were being written and would be signed this week.

The tariffs would increase jobs in the iron, steel and non-ferrous metals industries by 33,464, but the US would lose 179,334 jobs throughout the rest of the economy.

Some Democratic lawmakers heralded the deal for protecting American industries. As speaker, Ryan is second in line to the presidency, after the vice president, under the Constitution.

But Commerce secretary Ross dismissed that notion in an interview with ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" Sunday. "I think there's a lot of communication going back and forth". When services - not jut goods - are figured in, the US has a trade surplus with the Great White North.
