North American Free Trade Agreement as a bargaining chip

Trump and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull agreed Friday that Australia will also be given an exemption, although the details are yet to be worked out.

Analysts pointed to softening rhetoric from Trump and his aides over the last day, including a temporary exemption for Mexico and Canada while the countries renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Trump predicted Cohn was "going to go out and make another couple of hundred million".

Brazil, which after Canada is the biggest steel supplier to the USA market, said it wanted to join the list.

This comes after the games industry previously stated that it had not been contacted by Trump, despite White House officials claiming that a meeting with game executives had been organized.

Adding new elements to the negotiations to create wiggle room on big decisions was a Trump tactic familiar to David Bozell, a supporter of the president.

He said Congress has given the president too much power over trade deals and, long term, lawmakers should consider changing that.

In the meeting, Trump "acknowledged some studies have indicated there is a correlation between video game violence and real violence", a White House statement said.

United Steelworkers President Leo Gerard had voiced opposition to tariffs on Canada, whose steel and aluminum industries are fully integrated with those of the United States and where workers are represented by the Pittsburgh-based union. But Liddell, the White House director of strategic initiatives, is seen as a front-runner to replace Cohn as director of the National Economic Council, they said.

"We call for calm-headed behavior", he told reporters. "We kept making the case that Canada wasn't the enemy".

Paik Un-gyu, minister of trade, industry and energy, speaks during a meeting with senior officials from Korean steelmakers at the Convention and Exhibition Center (COEX) in Seoul on March 9, 2018.

"We will urge the worldwide community to refrain from adopting measures that inhibit free trade", said the minister, Paik Un-gyu, according to a ministry statement.

"I think there's no question that the action the president took today is a further motivation to both Canada and Mexico to make a fair arrangement with the United States", Ross said in an interview on CNBC.

"He and I have a good relationship because we wrestle a lot and he knows where I stand", Sasse told The World-Herald.

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 create a global glut of steel that has driven down prices.

"The European Union, wonderful countries who treat the US very badly on trade, are complaining about the tariffs on steel and aluminum".

Seoul has repeatedly asked the Trump administration to exempt it from the steep tariffs, citing close economic and security ties between the two nations.

However, he has argued that the tariffs would counter cheap imports, especially from China, which he says are undermining US industries and jobs.
