Foreign Minister Julie Bishop won't have time to meet him before she flies home from the U.S., but said Australia's ambassador Joe Hockey will push the case. Mexico and Canada are exempt from these tariffs, and Trump has raised the possibility of issuing exemptions to other nations. He also said that the United States is open to modifying tariffs on individual countries, depending on how they treat the US. NAFTA talks are expected to resume early next month.
"When it comes to a time when our country can't make aluminum and steel you nearly don't have a country", Trump said. It's really an assault on our country.

"The American aluminium and steel industry has been ravaged by aggressive foreign trade practices".
Trade tensions between the world's two largest economies have risen since Trump took office in 2017, and although China accounts for only a small fraction of USA steel imports, its massive industry expansion has helped produce a global glut of steel that has driven down prices.
