President Donald Trump plans to announce as soon as Friday the imposition of sweeping tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico, and the European Union, three people familiar with the plan said.
Frustrated over the failure of those US trading partners to agree to a range of demands, the president chose to sharply escalate his global trade war rather than grant further tariff waivers.
The import taxes could take effect as soon as Saturday.
