Trump Lifts Tariffs on Mexico, Canada
Trump Lifts Tariffs on Mexico, Canada Bogged down in a sprawling trade dispute with U.S. rival China, President Donald Trump took steps Friday to ease tensions with America's allies — lifting import taxes on Canadian and Mexican steel and aluminum and delaying auto tariffs that would have hurt Japan and Europe.
