Turkey strikes back, taxing $1.8 billion worth of US goods

Turkey is imposing tariffs on nearly two dozen US products, ranging from cars to sunscreen, to strike back at Washington’s sanctions on imported steel and aluminum.

According to documents filed with the World Trade Organization, Turkey will slap $267 million in tariffs on $1.8 billion worth of products the United States exports to Turkey.

The tariffs, which take effect Thursday, are in retaliation for President Donald Trump’s decision to tax foreign steel and aluminum. The US says the metals imports pose a threat to US national security. The move has enraged traditional US allies such as the European Union, Canada and Turkey.

The US tariffs come to $267 million on $1.1 billion in Turkish steel and aluminum shipments to the United States.
