White House says expects to complete tariff talks during 30-day exemption period

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Tuesday it expects to wrap up negotiations with Canada, the European Union and Mexico on announced U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum imports within a 30-day extended exemption period.

“It’s a 30-day extension and we expect for these negotiations to be completed at the end of those 30 days,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters. “Hopefully we can get something that works for everybody.”
