The president announced last week that the United States would impose heavy tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, with some countries potentially exempted.
"We are negotiating the NAFTA accord in good faith and we will continue to do so, but I don't want the president to think he can bring tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum without there being consequences", he told Radio-Canada earlier in the day.
Donald Trump has said his commerce secretary will be talking to the European Union about tariffs the USA president argues have been unfair to America.
"Two economic and trade blocs as great as the United States and the European Union can in no way see the conflict escalate", he added. "This episode has not changed our NAFTA negotiation position".
The EU is seeking to be exempted from planned USA import duties of 25 per cent on steel and 10 per cent on aluminium, but says Washington has not made clear how the exemption process works.
The steel and aluminum industries did not need these tariffs to be more competitive globally, because they were already made more competitive thanks to the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). "We are too, so we're glad to do it".
The proclamation instead pointed to economic integration between the U.S., Canada and Mexico, the fact the U.S. also exports steel to both Canada and Mexico, and the three countries' shared commitment to national security and addressing global excess capacity in steel production. Other trade partners, including Japan and China, have also voiced anger and pledged retaliation if the U.S. tariffs are enacted as expected on March 23. "It is bad for European citizens, for Dutch citizens and it will turn out bad for US citizens as well".
