WASHINGTON (AP) - Lawmakers, business groups and U.S. trading partners are bracing for the details of President Donald Trump's plan to slap tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.

Trump is expected to announce the tariffs by week's end. Trump's trade and manufacturing adviser, Peter Navarro, says the proclamation the president intends to sign will include a clause that would not impose tariffs on Canada and Mexico immediately.

More than 100 Republican House members are urging Trump to reconsider the tariffs, warning of unintended negative consequences to American workers and the national economy.

In addition to lawmakers, business leaders are sounding the alarm about the potential economic fallout, with the president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce raising the specter of a global trade war.
