President Trump’s administration appears unbowed by broad domestic and international criticism of his planned import tariffs on steel and aluminum, saying Sunday that the president is not planning on exempting any countries from the stiff duties.

Speaking on CNN’s State of the Union, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said: ‘At this point in time there’s no country exclusions.’
