US doubles tariffs on Turkish steel, aluminium

US President Donald Trump has doubled US tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminium, as the precipitous fall of the Turkish lira accelerates.
 
In a tweet, Mr. Trump said the currency was weak against a very strong US dollar, adding that "US relations with Turkey are not good at this time".
 
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a speech that the drop was part of a "campaign" led by foreign powers.
 
Relations between the two Nato allies have grown strained in recent months.
