Trump Says U.S. Will Be 'Flexible" When It Comes to Tariffs
Updated on

President Donald Trump will sign an order on Thursday over steel and aluminum tariffs that he said could spare Canada, Mexico, possibly Australia and certain other countries that have strong trading and military ties with the U.S.

Trump will sign the formal proclamations on the tariffs at 3:30 p.m. in Washington, the White House said in an emailed statement. After that, he has as many as 15 days to implement the tariffs.
