Trump charges Ross with pushing European Union to lower tariffs, European Union objects

But he exempted NAFTA partners Canada and Mexico, and the White House will let other nations justify their own case for exception from the tariffs.

Brussels is also looking at "safeguard" measures to protect its industry - restricting the bloc's imports of steel and aluminium to stop foreign supplies flooding the European market, which is allowed under World Trade Organization rules.

Fox said that the United Kingdom has a "long and special relationship with the U.S., however this does not mean that if we disagree with something we will not say so and we do disagree with the USA decision to implement tariffs on steel and aluminium". On Monday, he tweeted that Mr Ross would be speaking with European Union representatives about eliminating "large tariffs and barriers" "Not fair to our farmers and manufacturers", he said. "If not, we Tax Cars etc". But as noted last week by The Associated Press, Trump's steel tariffs would benefit an industry that employs 140,000 Americans at the expense of steel-dependent industries that employ 6.5 million, such as vehicle and aircraft manufacturers and the makers of building materials.

Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry chief executive James Pearson said Australia must now use its diplomatic skills to help to avert a global trade war that no one will win.

Mr. Trump hinted at being more lenient toward allies like Canada, Mexico and Australia during a Cabinet meeting last week. "We fully understand the desire to take action against nations whose unfair trade practices have led to global overcapacities in steel and aluminum, and encourage the Administration to adopt a targeted approach".

U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, speaks at the Conferederation of British Industry's annual conference in London, Britain, November 6, 2017.

At a campaign rally Saturday, Trump threatened to "tax" German cars if the European Union does not lower its barriers to United States goods. Swedish manufacturer Electrolux halted its plans to build a $250 million production plant in Tennessee, attributing its decision to Trump's tariff announcement. "FAIR!" Mr. Trump said in a tweet. They also fear that other countries hit by the new tariff policy will redirect their steel exports to Europe.

"An in-kind tariff by the United States' top ten trading partners would expose close to 42 per cent of total US exports, leading to a widening in the trade deficit", they said. "If you're thinking about trying to get your key partners to actually cooperate with you on the underlying issue ... it's going to be much more hard to get them to do so if at the same time you're hitting them with tariffs".

According to an European Union statement, the average European Union tariff is 3 percent, not much more than the United States' average 2.4 percent.

He also highlighted the strength of the national security relationship between the United Kingdom and the US.

NAFTA talks started seven months ago and the U.S.is starting to get antsy about getting a deal.
