U.S. re-imposes 10 pct tariff on aluminum from CanadaChristian Fernsby ▼ | August 7, 2020
U.S. President Donald Trump said Thursday that he has determined to re-impose a 10-percent tariff on aluminum from Canada, according to a newly released presidential proclamation.
Determined Donald Trump
Amid strong opposition, the Trump administration slapped tariffs on imported steel and aluminum globally in 2018 citing national security concerns.
In May 2019, Trump removed the tariffs on Canada and Mexico, in hope that the U.S. Congress would ratify the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), a new trade agreement that entered into force on July 1. ■
