US President Donald trump restored steel and aluminium tariffs on Brazil and Argentina during a press briefing from the White House in Washington DC, Monday, in response to a currency devaluation from the Latin American countries.

"They've devalued their currency very substantially by ten percent, Argentina also. I gave them a big break on tariffs but now I'm taking that break off because it's very unfair to our manufactures and very unfair to our farmers," said Trump, adding that "Our steel companies will be very happy and our farmers will be very happy with what I did."

"The Ukrainian President came out and said very strongly that President Trump did absolutely nothing wrong, that should be case over. But he just came out a little while ago and he said President Trump did absolutely nothing wrong and that should end everything, but it will never end it because they want to do what they want to do," stated the US President."

"It's a disgrace. It's a disgrace for our country," Trump added.
