Trump to investigate imports of foreign-made steel…

President Trump on Thursday will sign a directive calling for an investigation into whether foreign-made steel imports are harming national security, Reuters reported late Wednesday.

The memo Trump will sign at the White House cites a law allowing the president to impose restrictions on imports for national security reasons, the report said. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross launched the probe late Wednesday.

Trump’s directive will reportedly ask Ross to conduct it “with all deliberate speed and deliver the results to the president with his recommendations.”
