Trump to sign off on tarrifs to hit China's aluminium trade

President Donald Trump has said he will sign off on steep tariffs on steel and aluminium imports next week, hitting producers like China.
 
Flanked by US metals executives at the White House, he said a 25 per cent tariff would be placed on steel products, and a 10 per cent tariff would be imposed on aluminium.
 
Mr. Trump tweeted that the US was suffering from "unfair trade".
 
The US imports four times more steel than it exports, and is reliant on steel produced in China.
