The president was asked during a joint news conference if he would go through with his previous plans to impose a 25 percent tariff on steel imports and a 10 percent tariff on aluminum imports.

Trump says the U.S. has long been "mistreated" by trade deals and has been dealing with a massive trade deficit.

He is reiterating that if he's able to make a deal with Canada and Mexico to improve the terms of the North American Free Trade Agreement, "there will be no reason to do tariffs" on steel and aluminum from the two neighbors.
