President Trump announced new tariffs Thursday in two separate proclamations, one for imports of steel [text] and one for aluminum [text].

Republicans and U.S. trading partners have also been urging Mr Trump to reconsider his plan to impose a blanket 25 per cent tariff on steel imports, and a 10 per cent on aluminium.

He said he was considering exempting Mexico and Canada too, provided the U.S. got a good deal in the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

His move, an assertive step for his "America First" agenda, has rattled allies across the globe and raised questions at home about whether protectionism will impede USA economic growth. "Should we be part of the WTO?' Or, the reverse, the WTO says 'well, we let countries decide their own national security.' Then you've created a very big loophole".

"We have to do to protect our steel or aluminum in our country", Trump told his Cabinet members in the presence of White House reporters.

The video is unavailable on devices using YouTube's Restricted Mode option for filtering out violent and other kid-inappropriate content, Polygon reported.

The move, which fulfills a Trump campaign promise, has been widely criticized by economists who say it is certain to increase costs to USA consumers on items such as automobiles, household appliances and even energy, due to higher costs for pipeline construction.

On March 1, Trump had announced that he would impose 25 per cent import tariff on steel and 10 per cent on aluminium to protect United States producers, a move that invited criticism from China and the Europe which said it could trigger a trade war. And even as Trump approved the tariffs, 11 partners in the Asia-Pacific were in Santiago, Chile, to sign a multilateral trade deal embraced by president Barack Obama but rejected by Trump. Most economists have questioned the benefits of tariffs compared to their economic costs, especially in light of the global competitive boost from the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

The European Union warned before the announcement that it was ready to retaliate with counter-measures against iconic USA products such as Harley Davidson motorcycles, Levi's jeans and bourbon.

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten said he was optimistic Australia would be exempt from the tariffs.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland, meanwhile, called the announcement a "step forward" and said Canadian officials had exerted tremendous efforts to get the exemption.

Tariffs and a depreciating loonie would also boost the price of US imports into Canada, leading real merchandise imports to fall by a similar $8.8 billion or 1.8 per cent.

A report from the Washington Post suggested some games developers had also been invited to attend, including Take Two Interactive, the publisher of the controversial Grand Theft Auto series. The talks are expected to resume early next month.

The looming departure of White House economic adviser Gary Cohn, a former Goldman Sachs executive who has opposed the promised tariffs, set off anxiety among business leaders and investors anxious about a potential trade war. They spoke only on condition of anonymity to discuss internal administration roles.
