Effective June 1, 2018, additional tariffs of 25 percent and 10 percent on steel and aluminum imports were imposed for almost all countries.

Effective February 8, 2020, these tariffs will now also apply to certain derivatives of aluminum  and steel articles.  This applies to aluminum derivatives from all countries except Argentina, Australia, Canada, and Mexico and steel derivatives from all countries except Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico and South Korea.

On August 6 2020, President Trump announced that the 10 percent tariff on aluminum would be reimposed on Canadian imports, effective for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after 12:01 am EDT on Aug. 16. Canada has responded with plans to retaliate against $2.7 billion worth of imports from the U.S. Steel and aluminum products from Mexico and steel products from Canada are not subject to the additional tariffs.
