Breaking News - Steel, Aluminum Tariff Order Inked by President Trump

Law360 has just posted the below: President Donald Trump forged ahead with his controversial tariffs on imported steel and aluminum Thursday, stressing the need to shield U.S. security interests while also exempting Canada and Mexico and allowing other allies to earn relief from the duties.

Trump signed what administration officials called a pair of “flexible” orders that will put a 25 percent tariff on steel and a 10 percent tariff on aluminum in place in 15 days.

John S. Connor, Inc. will continue to monitor how the additional tariff will be rolled out.
