President Trump will not impose tariffs or quotas on uranium imports.

The Department of Commerce announced July 18, 2018 its self-initiation of an investigation under section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 to determine whether the present quantity and circumstances of uranium ore and product imports threaten to impair U.S. national security. In April 2019, the department determined that imports of uranium are threatening U.S. national security.

However, a July 12, 2019 presidential memorandum states that while the report's findings "raise significant concerns...a fuller analysis of national security considerations with respect to the entire nuclear fuel supply chain is necessary at this time." To that end, the memorandum establishes the United States Nuclear Fuel Working Group, but declines to adjust imports through tariffs and quotas.
