Metals Meltdown

Making sense of the Trump tariffs

March 09, 2018 (10:08 mins)



After months of discussion, US President Donald Trump signed off on sweeping global metals tariffs -- 25% on steel and 10% on aluminum -- that exclude its Nafta neighbors to the north and south. All other countries will have to seek case-by-case exemptions from the White House, though, and trade routes are sure to be redrawn in the coming months as a result. In this special edition of Metals Meltdown, S&P Global Platts' Christopher Davis and Peter Brennan are joined by North American colleagues Joe Innace and Rebecca Grenham to discuss what it all means for the markets.
