After a telephone call with Turnbull on Friday, Trump posted a Twitter message saying that Turnbull "is committed to having a very fair and reciprocal military and trade relationship".

USA industries processing steel and aluminum have also criticized the tariffs as landing them with higher costs. "We have large trade deficits with Mexico and Canada".

"As long-standing security partners of the United States, (the European Union and Japan) underlined to ambassador Lighthizer their expectation that European Union and Japanese exports to the USA would be exempted from the application of higher tariffs", an European Union statement said after the talks.

It said it wanted details from Saturday's talks with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer in Brussels but that it did not expect the meeting to resolve all the problems. The EU has already singled out Levi's and Harley-Davidson products, while China is likely to target U.S. soyabeans and sorghum exports.

President Donald J. Trump is applauded by steel and aluminum industry executives at a meeting on tariffs. And I don't mean Obama - I mean all of them. "It's crap", Trump said, earning cheers from the crowd. Trump's chief economic adviser, Gary Cohn, is resigning, reportedly because of his oppositions to the tariffs.

"They send in timber, they send in steel, they send in a lot of things".

Steel imports will be hit with a 25% tariff and aluminum imports with a 10% tariff. NAFTA's legal structure, which offers its members tariff-free access to each other's markets, was a major complication in applying the tariffs to Canada and Mexico, according to a prominent Washington trade lobbyist, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter.

The United States was "the steward, the leader, of establishing, of developing a system of worldwide relations, " Norbert Röttgen, an ally of German Chancellor Angela Merkel who is the head of the foreign affairs committee of the lower house of Germany's parliament, said at a conference in Brussels.

The lessons of history are very clear, but in typical Trump fashion, he refuses to accept them.

With tensions at a peak, the European Union had sought to keep low expectations for any breakthrough on Saturday. The White House said in a statement Saturday that "both presidents discussed alternative ways to address United States concerns", without elaborating.

Along with a huge range of steel products, the European Union 's hit list of flagship American products lined up for counter measures includes peanut butter, bourbon whiskey and denim jeans. In the days leading up to Thursday's announcement, the biggest trade move of Trump's presidency, key industry players and trading partners were still in the dark about the contours of the plan.

One may say the feared damage is not that serious, taking into account the country's gross domestic product (GDP) of 1,500 trillion won ($1.4 trillion).

Trump said Canada and Mexico are exempt for now, and other countries could be spared if they can convince the administration that their steel and aluminum exports don't threaten American jobs and industry. He also added Australia to the list of likely carve-outs.

If Trump makes the USA an erratic and chaotic trade partner, Australia will be seen by China, South Korea, India and ASEAN as safe, reliable and on side in the Asia-Pacific.
