Baldwin reaction to Trump tariffs mixed

The Latest: Danish foreign minister rues Trump's 'bad call'

Trump was still hearing last-minute pleas from opponents of the tariff plan, and White House officials said they couldn't predict how the day would shake out.

Adding to the wave of criticism, the head of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Thomas Donohue said his organization was very concerned about the potential for retaliation and a trade war.

So Trump agreed to indefinitely exempt Canada and Mexico, another ally and metals supplier.

Undeterred by the resignation of his senior economics adviser and pleas from more than 100 Republican lawmakers not to go through with the tariffs, Trump signed into law tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum.

Canada is the No. 1 seller of both steel and aluminum to the U.S.

Canada's ambassador to Washington dined this week with USA national-security adviser H.R. McMaster; Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr, Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan, and Transport Minister Marc Garneau all reached out to cabinet counterparts in recent days.

More than 100 House Republicans wrote Trump on Wednesday, asking him to reconsider "the idea of broad tariffs to avoid unintended negative consequences" to the US economy and workers.

"As such, we would fully agree with the message in support of NAFTA expressed by the associations representing the North American freight-rail industry", notes Erik Autor, president of the National Association of Free Trade Zones (NAFTZ). Renegotiations over NAFTA began last summer.

Wang, who spoke on the sidelines of the National People's Congress in Beijing, urged the U.S.to work with China on a mutually beneficial solution.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced at a press conference that the administration is examining the impact of imposing the tariffs on a "case-by-case" basis.

Critics argue that the tariffs would fail to protect American jobs and would ultimately raise prices for consumers. European Union officials have suggested they could impose up to $3.5 billion in retaliatory tariffs on US products nearly immediately. Paul Seamus Ryan, the Vice President of Policy and Litigation at watchdog nonprofit Common Cause, told ThinkProgress that the payment Trump's attorney made to Daniels may have violated federal law, depending on where the money came from.

Even before Thursday's announcement, Europeans were vowing to retaliate with tariffs of their own on a range of American products - Harley-Davidson motorcycles, Levi's jeans and bourbon, among them.

In a statement, McConnell said he was "concerned about the scope" of the tariffs and their impact on the USA economy.

Trump had originally said that the tariffs would be applied equally, with no exceptions for allies.

Other countries with which we have "a security relationship", an allusion to South Korea, Japan, Germany and others, will face immediate tariffs but will get a chance to "discuss alternative ways to address our concerns", in return, potentially, for some tariff relief.
