US President Donald Trump announced at the beginning of March, an additional tax to import steel and aluminum to explain the introduction of a move to disrupt international trade balances. The US, which imports 4 times of its steel and has reduced its production from 112 million tons to 86 million tons compared to the year 2000, plans to reduce steel imports by decreasing the current account deficit and increasing production in this area.

In the US, 135 thousand people were employed in the steel industry in 2000, while in 2016 this figure had decreased to 83 thousand people. If the global partners of the United States, especially the European Union, start to retaliate with similar additional tax decisions, trade barriers arising from the protectionist taxes will occur.
