Automakers and other businesses that want to win exclusions from President Trump's planned tariffs on imported steel and aluminum will face a high bar set by the U.S. Commerce Department, The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.

USA officials are expected to release in a matter of days more details on how the exclusions are going to work, people familiar with the plans told the Journal.

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.

The Trump administration is pressing China to cut its trade surplus with the United States by $100 billion, a White House spokeswoman said on March 14, clarifying a tweet last week from President Donald Trump.

US President Donald Trump is reportedly considering imposing tariffs on up to 60 billion dollars of Chinese imports.

Donohue also warned that sanctions against China "could lead to a destructive trade war with serious consequences for USA economic growth and job creation".

Navarro, who rose to fame by publishing anti-Beijing diatribes on trade, is an outlier among more mainstream economists, who believe excessive tariffs will be self-defeating and trade deficits do not pose the threat that protectionists and trade hawks claim they do.

The news website Politico earlier reported that the U.S. Trade Representative's office had presented Trump with a package of $30 billion in tariffs last week, but Trump told aides that this was not high enough.

Volume on US exchanges was 6.53 billion shares, compared to the 7.14 billion average over the last 20 trading days.

The EU has been talking with partners about a legal challenge at the World Trade Organization to Trump's plan.

Trump was elected on a protectionist agenda, and in the past year he has pulled the United States out of the 14-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and started talks to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with Canada and Mexico.

It says the tariffs are associated with a "Section 301" intellectual property investigation under the 1974 US Trade Act which started in August a year ago, and the tariffs could come in the very near future.

Speaking to reporters in the Capitol, U. S. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady stressed that Trump was serious about addressing the issue of intellectual property theft.

Tusk said it was not too late to turn this around and asked Trump to come through on his promise to exempt "real friends" from the tariffs.

He has started talks to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and most recently imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

Warren: 'I'm Not Running for President in 2020′
Elizabeth Warren on Sunday about President Trump calling her "Pocahontas", and her response didn't exactly answer the question. Todd pointed out that many presidential candidates in the past said they were not running two years before an election.

President Donald Trump said the tariffs, due to take effect in late March, are needed to protect US workers.
