The US leader had also added Australia to a list of likely carve-outs, as a "great country" and "long-term partner". But Trump's protectionist policies and unpredictable approach to policymaking have made a once prestigious gig unpalatable for many. It's really an assault on our country.

The wall prototypes represent the signature promise of Trump's campaign: To build a "big, lovely wall" along the U.S. -Mexico border.

"We're pleased with [Trump's] statements of tying the tariffs to a fair resolution to our trade negotiations", said Ferriola.

The two will argue that their country's steel and aluminium exports to the U.S. do not pose a threat to America's national security.

Two days ago, Malmstrom described the national-security argument that Trump has used to justify the 25 percent tariff on foreign steel and 10 percent levy on imported aluminum as "alarming" and "deeply unjust". "Or could the industry listen to the better angels of their nature and say, we just don't want to do it, on a voluntary basis?"

Many Republicans hold that imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum are an abuse of this law and are pushing to restrict it.

And with midterm elections looming, the extraordinary backlash from the president's Republican Party sets up a showdown between the chief executive and his own majority lawmakers.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, appearing with Home Depot employees in Atlanta, warned of "unintended consequences". According to her data, manufacturing jobs have increased by 275,000.

Trump said at a press conference this week that he likes "conflict", and certainly there was some of that internally on the tariffs. The tariffs would "seriously impact the normal order of global trade", the Ministry of Commerce said. Fox moderator Chris Wallace quoted sources that the tariff will raise the price of steel and aluminum used in auto manufacturing by $175 per vehicle.

Stocks ended the day higher after the announcement, with investors relieved by the carved out exceptions for key allies.

An on-the-spot decision with global ramifications, Trump's agreement to sit down with Kim came after a meeting with a South Korean delegation and took some of his top aides by surprise.

Nations around the globe that were not excluded from the tariffs reacted with dismay.

"NATO related issues and trade are completely separate issues", European Commission official Jyrki Katainen told reporters.

Malmström will have a chance to make the EU's case again on Saturday, when she meets US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer in Brussels.

The EU was clear on Friday that it views tariffs and defense as separate. Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono called the decision "extremely regrettable", predicting it could have a major impact on the economy and the relationship between the USA and Japan, as well as the global economy.

"This has been a true Team Canada effort", said Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, also crediting provincial premiers, businesses and labour leaders. "That Canada could be seen as a threat to USA security is inconceivable", she said.

"Hopeful" - The president's attitude toward the possible talks, according to Sarah.
