The investigation looked into if certain steel imports are a threat to national security. Surrounded by steel company executives last April, Trump signed an executive order, expediting the investigation. 

Steelworkers have been calling for quicker action, since they say levels of imports have risen during the investigation. Results from the probe could lead to tariffs or import quotas.

U.S. Steel sent a statement on Friday about the 232 investigation. It reads: "With the completion of the Department of Commerce's investigation, United States Steel Corporation encourages President Trump to take swift and decisive action. Our Nation cannot afford to allow the continued rise of foreign imports that undermine America's capacity to produce the steel necessary for our country's national and economic security."
