US eases way to more tariff exemptions under pressure By

The top Republican in the US Congress, Paul Ryan, publicly denounced President Donald Trump's imposition Thursday of steep tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum.

"The American aluminum and steel industry has been ravaged by aggressive foreign trade practices".

Here in Southwest Louisiana, the future of several multibillion-dollar liquefied natural gas facilities is at stake.

Some reports say Trudeau's phone conversation with Trump this week was what convinced Trump to exempt Canada from the tariffs.

Magnolia is among eight LNG export projects planned for Southwest Louisiana, in addition to the one already operating in Sabine Pass and another under construction in Hackberry.

"The European Union has chose to respond clearly to the USA measures and as the federal government we support this position", government spokesman Georg Streiter told a regular news conference.

But the tariffs also threatened to spark an global trade war, as leaders in Europe, Canada, China and beyond warned they could retaliate with new tariffs of their own.

Trump has also invited Strauss Zelnick, the CEO of the company that makes the game "Grand Theft Auto", and Robert Altman, chairman and CEO of the parent company that produces games like "Fallout", the White House announced. In the future he added there will be many cases of reciprocal tax which is virtually a tit for tat in tariffs between trading partners.

Salmonella outbreak related to kratom across US
Several employees have tested positive for salmonella but it is unclear whether the people or the food is the link to the illness. Two more confirmed cases added during the last week brought the number of illnesses in the Colorado Salmonella outbreak to 37.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, appearing at a session with Home Depot employees in Atlanta, said ahead of Trump's announcement, "I'm just not a fan of broad-based, across-the-board tariffs".

But Trump said he would simply up levies on auto imports from the European Union in retaliation - a potentially painful blow for "car nation" and export champion Germany. "I think that they know that kids are playing these games and [that] children do have ready access to violent video games". Steel imports would see a 25% higher tariff while aluminum tariffs would be 10 percent higher.

Trump frequently uses the term to refer to people like Cohn who hold an economic philosophy that favors free trade and open markets.

Both joined the Ways and Means chairman and 100 other House Republicans in a letter to Trump that expressed "deep concern" about his tariff plan and asking him to narrow its scope. "Rest assured, as the administration works to move forward their tariff package, I will be a vocal advocate for actions that benefit New Mexico businesses".

Canada and Mexico are exempt from the tariffs, but only conditionally and for now. Almost half of Nebraska's exports go to Mexico and Canada.

The seventh round of NAFTA talks between the three involved nations concluded in Mexico Monday.

"We dodged a bullet", said McMaster University business professor Marvin Ryder.

"It is crucial to Nebraska's ag economy", Bacon said. Unfortunately, the problem of easily available firearms is not being looked at close enough and that is the real problem and primary cause of gun violence in the US.
