Aiming at Trump strongholds, Mexico hits back with trade tariffs

Aiming at Trump strongholds, Mexico hits back with trade tariffsMexico put tariffs on American products ranging from steel to pork and bourbon on Tuesday, retaliating against import duties on metals imposed by President Donald Trump and taking aim at Republican strongholds ahead of U.S. congressional elections in November. Mexico’s response further raises trade tensions between the two countries and adds a new complication to efforts to renegotiate the trillion-dollar North American Free Trade Agreement between Canada, the United States and Mexico. American pork producers, for whom Mexico is the largest export market, were dismayed by the move.
