President Trump Officially Signs Tariffs On Steel And Aluminum Imports

President Trump continues his push to boost American manufacturing as he formally announced tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.
Speaking at a ceremony in the Roosevelt Room Thursday, the president outlined a 25-percent tariff on foreign steel and a 10-percent tariff on foreign aluminum.
The president called the dumping of cheap, foreign metals in the U.S. “an assault on the nation,” and said tariffs will boost our “once proud industries.”
He also said it would boost national security, and the U.S. would no longer be taken advantage of.

The president said Mexico and Canada will be exempt from the tariffs as long as a fair NAFTA deal can be reached.
The tariffs will take effect in 15 days.
