US President Donald Trump has accused Brazil and Argentina of deliberately devaluing their currencies. He has retaliated by removing a tariff exemption on steel and aluminium imports from the two nations. Australian imports will continue to be subject to the tariff exemption; local aluminium producers have significantly cut their shipment to the US since May, when concerns were raised within the Trump administration about a sharp rise in export volumes. Trump has also flagged tariffs on imports from France in response to the nation’s digital services tax.
