03/01/18: President Trump said in a meeting at the White House today that he’ll impose tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum into the United States.

In an early-morning Tweet, the President also said, “Our Steel and Aluminum industries (and many others) have been decimated by decades of unfair trade and bad policy with countries from around the world. We must not let our country, companies and workers be taken advantage of any longer.”

The President promised to implement the measures, which he said would apply to all foreign countries, during the coming week, and that such tariffs would be in effect “for a long period of time”.
