Both South American nations were among U.S. allies that Mr Trump had exempted from steel and aluminium tariffs in March 2018.

Hours before he was to depart for a Nato conference in London, Mr Trump tweeted that “Brazil and Argentina have been presiding over a massive devaluation of their currencies, which is not good for our farmers."
