Turkey Hits US With Steep Retaliatory Tariffs

When will all this endless winning ever stop?

Turkey on Thursday hit back at the United States with steep tariffs on $1.8 billion of goods for President Trump’s duties on steel and aluminum imports that went into effect in March. The additional retaliatory tariffs range between 5 and 40 percent and are set to start on Thursday.

Trump has imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum imports. “We cannot and will not allow Turkey to be wrongly blamed for America’s economic challenges,” Turkish Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci said in a statement. “We are part of the solution, not the problem.”
