Trump spoke with Canada's Trudeau about tariffs, NAFTA talks: White House”

President Donald Trump spoke on Monday with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau about the steel and aluminum import tariffs Trump announced last week, the White House said. He was due to meet workers at Rio Tinto Ltd's smelting plant in Alma.

The European Union is seeking to be exempted from planned USA import duties on steel and aluminum, but says Washington has not made clear how the exemption process works.

"The European Union, wonderful countries who treat the USA very badly on trade, are complaining about the tariffs on Steel & Aluminum".

Reacting to Trump's urge, Trudeau told CNN that Canada is glad to see the USA is eager to seal the deal.

"We don't link together the tariffs and the negotiations for NAFTA, but we're happy to continue to move forward on the negotiations", he said in an interview on "Power Lunch".

Trudeau kicks off the tour today in Jonquiere, Quebec.

"I understand this point of view, but for me, I think Canadians in general are expecting us to work productively with the United States", Trudeau said.

Speaking at an industry conference in Brussels, French finance minister Bruno LeMaire said he was anxious about the possibility of a U.S. -EU trade war, but said Europe had to respond to new U.S. tariffs on Europe. Canada has vowed to retaliate if duties are imposed.

Trudeau, who is expected to travel to three other Canadian steel cities to reassure workers in the coming days, said Canada already has "significant barriers" in place to prevent low-priced steel and aluminum from being dumped there, and is prepared to work with Washington to "do even more".

"These are two separate tracks and in the NAFTA negotiations Canada will not be subject to any type of pressure. This episode has not changed our NAFTA negotiating position - we are very clear on that", she told CTV television on Sunday.
