Reuters reported that US President Donald Trump will meet with a bipartisan group of lawmakers on Tuesday to discuss trade matters, as he ponders whether to takes steps to limit steel and aluminium imports seen as damaging to US businesses. White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said “The president will hear from bipartisan members of Congress across the spectrum of opinions on trade matters, including the pending (Section) 232 cases on steel and aluminium. This meeting is part of the president’s commitment to ensure fair and reciprocal trade policies that support the American worker and grow the American economy.”

A month ago the Commerce Department handed Trump the results of its investigation into steel and aluminium imports, giving him 90 days to respond. They have offered no insight into their conclusions.

US steel company executives urged Trump early this month to impose trade measures to curb excess steel capacity and surging imports they say are undermining domestic industry.
