SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Canada has revealed retaliatory tariffs against U.S. duties on steel and aluminum. They're set to go into place July 1. 

The tariffs target things like ketchup, boats, toilet paper, dishwasher fluid, playing cards, coffee and yogurt. They'll total around $12.6 billion in U.S. goods. 

Mexico, Turkey and the European Union have also announced tariffs in response to President Donald Trump's import tax on steel and aluminum. They mostly focus on goods produced in key Republican districts, such as bourbon in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's Kentucky and Harley-Davidson motorcycles from House Speaker Paul Ryan's Wisconsin. 

Canadian officials said their tariffs were a "measured" response to President Trump's, which they called "illegal."
