Trump will sign a decree on the duties on steel and aluminum on Thursday

WASHINGTON, 8 Mar — RIA Novosti. The US President Donald trump will sign a decree on import duties on steel and aluminum on Thursday, the White house said.

The signing ceremony is scheduled for 15:30 Washington time (23:30 GMT).

Trump last week said that the U.S. imposed import duties on steel in 25% and aluminium 10%. This caused a negative reaction of the EU, China and many other countries.

A number of experts and politicians warned about the possibility of a “trade war” with the constant increase in import duties in a number of countries. Trump, in response, stated that a trade war is good, and easy to win.
