"Undoubtedly, the resulting higher steel and aluminum prices are clearly nothing more than a tax on the American people".
Doing so would also seem to at least partly defeat the objective of the tariffs. "It's been an assault", Trump said at the White House.
Reiterating that countries including America's "friends and allies" have been fleecing the United States economy and taking away jobs for decades, Trump pledged to impose "reciprocal tax". A White House official said Trump was referencing an ongoing investigation of China in which the US trade representative is studying whether Chinese intellectual property rules are "unreasonable or discriminatory" to American business. "We urge you to reconsider the idea of broad tariffs to avoid unintended negative consequences to the USA economy and its workers", 107 House Republicans wrote in a letter to Trump on Wednesday.
U.S. Rep. Richard Neal, the top Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee, meanwhile, offered a more mixed take on the president's move to institute newtariffs on foreign steel and aluminum. Those negotiations will be headed up by U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer.
"There will be other communities that will be very hard hit by these tariffs and there is a possibility that these tariffs will lead to immediate layoffs in production facilities across Canada".
Britain blasted the tariffs as "not the right way" to tackle the problem of global overcapacity in steel and said it would work with the European Union to consider the scope for exemptions.
China had also urged the White House to avoid a damaging trade war - saying it would have to make a "necessary response" if tariffs were imposed. "Congress can not be complicit as the administration courts economic disaster", Flake said in a statement.
People briefed on the plans ahead of the announcement said all countries affected by the tariffs would be invited to negotiate with the administration to be exempted from the tariffs if they can address the threat their exports pose to USA manufacturers. A veto override, however, would require a two-thirds vote in each chamber ― a tall order for this Congress.
"If we reach a [NAFTA] deal, it's most likely that we won't be charging those two countries the tariffs", he said.
Both countries had heavily lobbied the administration in recent weeks.
Last week, Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), for example, likened the move to "dropping a bomb on a flea". He told Fox News: "As soon as he starts exempting countries, he has to raise the tariff on everybody else" and "As soon as he exempts one country, his phone starts ringing with the heads of state of other countries".
Shares of US Steel have already gained nearly 4% since President Trump first said he was ready to place new tariffs on metals imported to the United States - and Wall Street thinks they could go even higher.
Tim Phillips of Americans for Prosperity, a Koch brothers affiliate, also said he was "disappointed" by the tariffs. "Tariffs can tank our economy".
