Master Negotiator: Trump hints at tariff ‘flexibility’ for ‘real friends’

President Trump hinted that he would sign controversial tariffs on imports of aluminum and steel Thursday, but also suggested flexibility for “real friends” abroad who treat the U.S. fairly.

There were mixed messages from the White House surrounding if and when Trump would sign the tariffs.

No event was listed on the White House schedule, and officials told Fox News there would likely be no tariff event on Thursday, despite the White House having confirmed on Wednesday there would be a signing ceremony.

But in a tweet Thursday, Trump indicated that an event with industry leaders was still on.
