The tariffs come weeks after the Trump administration implemented a 25 per cent tariff on steel and 10 per cent tariff on aluminium imports in March.

Cecilia Malmstrom, the EU's trade commissioner, acknowledged that the European Union had targeted some iconic American imports for tariffs, like Harley-Davidson motorcycles and bourbon, to "make noise" and put pressure on USA leaders.

Canada said its tariffs of up to 25% on almost $13 billion of American products will take effect on July 1.

Oxford Economics said the consequences could be much greater if Trump imposed tariffs on cars, which leaders from both American and European auto manufacturers have said would lead to net job losses in the US. "The United States decision to impose targets on Europe goes against that, in fact it goes against all logic and history", European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Thursday. India and Turkey have already targeted USA products, ranging from rice to autos to sunscreen.
