So far only threats but...
There was EU/Japan/US trade discussions in Brussels yesterday, but no restoration of big Trump issues.
http://trade.ec.europa.eu/doclib/docs/2018/march/tradoc_156632.pdf
According to President Donald Trump, the controversial US 25 and 10 percent steel duty on steel and aluminum will come into force in two weeks.
The President's decision on customs has raised concerns in several directions around the world, and Trump has opened up to several countries to be excluded. So far, Canada, Mexico and Australia have been added to the list of countries likely to evade customs duties.
The EU hoped to get clear notification of exemption when Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström met with his US counterparts in Brussels, but it did not happen and the conversation will continue next week.
The EU Commission has prepared a long list of US products that can suffer from 25 percent US customs duties before the Trump tariffs signed.

EU companies are manufacturing 2,5 million cars in the US, and 60% of them are exported.
Trump says import of aluminum threatening US security.
Well, lots of it comes from close NATO ally Iceland produced by US firms there.
http://www.alcoa.com/iceland/ic/default.asp
Alcoa Fjardaál aluminum plant in Reyðarfjörður began operations in 2007. Fjardaal is one of the most modern and technologically advanced plants in the world and represents an example of environmental protection. The plant is the largest in Iceland and exports annually, equivalent to 10% of GDP.

Trump is playing to the American voters concerns. As I believe the Leadership of Iceland is also concerned with their people.

What would any future International Trade Agreements and Tariffs. Which addressed the concern of American Workers. Which is the number one priority of any American President look like?

Why are you unwilling to write a complete sentence? That makes it impossible to follow your train of thought.

Continue to expose you have no interest in commenting regarding ideas.

Continue with your personally silly attacks against another poster.

Nope. You are just unable to acknowledge that your beliefs are wrong.

Well it certainly goes to show that Trump doesn't remember what happened back in 2002.

On March 5, 2002, U.S. President George W. Bush placed tariffs on imported steel. The tariffs took effect March 20 and were lifted by Bush on December 4, 2003. Research shows that the tariffs adversely affected US GDP and employment.
Source.

Very little has changed since then, but I guess that he'll have to find out the hard way, except it'll still be the GDP and workers that'll pay the price again for his stupidity.
