The Center for Automotive Research (CAR) estimates that as a result of these tariffs "sales could plunge by as much as 2 million vehicles a year, resulting in the loss of up to 715,000 American jobs and a hit of as much as $62 billion to the U.S. GDP." CAR also "estimates that consumers will see the price of all new vehicles rise by $455 to $6,875 depending on the level of tariff or quota, where the vehicle was assembled, and whether the policy provides exemptions for automotive trade with Canada and Mexico." The Trump administration is also deliberating additional tariffs directly on cars and car parts.

On Tuesday April 3, 2018 the Trump Administration announced a 25% tariff on approximately 1,300 different Chinese products, focusing mostly on technology and machinery.  The total dollar amount of products affected by the tariffs is approximately $50 billion each year.

Canada, Mexico, and the EU were initially exempt from the tariffs at first, but on May 1, 2018 the Trump Administration announced an additional 30 days of negotiations on new tariffs for these countries/regions. On June 1, 2018 Canada, Mexico, and the EU were included in the steel and aluminum tariffs.   [caption id="attachment_2583" align="aligncenter" width="624"] SOURCE: BBC News (See Below Citations)[/caption] [post_title] => Trump Imposes 25% Tariff On Steel And 10% Tariff On Aluminum [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => trump-imposes-25-tariff-steel-10-tariff-aluminum-imported-countries-except-canada-mexico [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2018-06-09 11:13:43 [post_modified_gmt] => 2018-06-09 11:13:43 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://factualuprising.com/?p=2550 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) ) [post_count] => 10 [current_post] => -1 [in_the_loop] => [post] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 2805 [post_author] => 1 [post_date] => 2019-05-19 13:32:24 [post_date_gmt] => 2019-05-19 13:32:24 [post_content] => On September 24, 2018, 10% tariffs were levied on $200 billion in Chinese products being imported to the United States.  The Trump Administration also imposed 25% tariffs on an additional $50 billion worth of Chinese products (around 1,300 different products) in April of 2018.
