White House Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters said Ross will work closely with U.S. Trade Representative RobertLighthizer on determining country exemptions from the steel tariffs, specifically "whether proposed measures between the United States and another country will address the national security threat posed by that country's export to the United States of steel or aluminum products". "While we are grateful that our trading partners, Canada and Mexico, are now exempt, it is our view that these tariffs will quickly become a tax on the fix and maintenance of vehicles, a tax that will ultimately be paid for in higher fix prices by the American auto owner".
President Donald Trump's administration is considering a trade package including indefinite tariffs, investment restrictions and possible visa restrictions on Chinese travelers, a source told CNBC Tuesday.
The tariffs announced by the Trump administration last week on steel and aluminum are viewed as relatively insignificant in terms of imports and exports.
Another area where a trade war is likely is aerospace. A week later, as expected, he signed proclamations calling for restricting those imports.
President Donald Trump said the tariffs, due to take effect in late March, are needed to protect USA workers. But global trade has been anything but free. According to an analysis by the Council on Foreign Relations, U.S. steel employment peaked around 650,000 jobs in the 1950s, compared to around 140,000 today.
Steel and aluminum, along with coal, glass and solar panels, are among many Chinese industries that mushroomed until supply vastly outstripped demand.
US automakers are among the businesses with the most at stake, accounting for 38 percent of the aluminum and 15 percent of the steel consumed in the country, according to Ward's Automotive Reports. Trump can pull out of agreements, but he can't prevent the EU, China, and Japan to respond in kind, coming closer through agreements that keep the USA out.
"This is something that we take very seriously, because it does come and directly impact on the great Canadian workers, the great Canadian industries that we count on", he said.
It has also lined up 2.8 billion euros of US products, from bourbon to motorcycles, on which to impose tariffs so as to "rebalance" trade flows.
Mr. Trudeau argued that Canada - the largest supply list of steel to the United States - is a key American defence ally and noted Canadian steel is used to manufacture USA tanks and Canadian aluminum is in America warplanes. But there is still room for further negotiations. The tariffs take effect in about two weeks, which means the president could still change his mind.

Roughly two-thirds of the 35 economists polled by Bloomberg expect the tariffs that Trump signed last week would cause a small decrease in jobs and a small drop in USA economic growth, which is enjoying its third-longest expansion on record. He also credited Trump for keeping a promise: he said the president told him at last year's G7 that Canada would get an exemption, and kept his word. With the possibility of an exemption in mind, South Korean trade authorities will once again stress that Korean companies' investment in the US can contribute to the American economy and that Korean steel exports do not affect the U.S.' security and economy negatively.
"The budget's title is 'Equality + Growth, ' but on the growth side the government's agenda is disappointingly thin", said John Manley, president and CEO of the Business Council of Canada and a former federal Liberal finance minister.
But every sector of the US economy that uses steel or aluminum would suffer from higher prices.
The United States bought just 1.1 per cent of China's steel exports past year compared with 12 per cent for South Korea and 5 per cent for Japan, according to the US International Trade Commission.
Before that, Canadians spent days pondering what we could do in response.
In early 2002, then-President George W. Bush imposed steel tariffs of up to 30 percent on imports of steel in an effort to shore up domestic producers against low-priced imports.
So what happens when a country imposes tariffs? Countries that allege the U.S.is acting unfairly can use WTO councils, committees and its dispute settlement system - which essentially rules on trade squabbles - to seek and obtain redress.
Trump said in a tweet on Saturday the United States was ready to drop its tariffs if the European Union lowered its "horrific" rates on US products. The three major economies take up almost half of South Korea's total outbound shipments.
However, the fact is that we are already in a trade war; we have been it for many years; and we are losing it. Trump's tariffs risk nothing short of triggering a new global recession.
