This latest action on steel and aluminium could be a gambit to show that Mr Trump is not bluffing when he threatens to erect trade barriers. "I like free trade", he told reporters. She dismissed the argument that the tariffs were needed for USA national security reasons.
The sources interviewed Friday emphasized that anything could "turn on a dime" with Trump; hours later, they were proven correct.
