WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump plans to delay a decision that would have imposed steep tariffs on auto imports, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday, citing U.S. officials.

The deadline to decide on the tariffs is May 18, but White House aides have discussed postponing them for up to six months, a Bloomberg reporter said on Twitter.

Administration officials told Reuters last week that Trump would likely delay the imposition of the tariffs.
