Trump to Double Steel and Aluminum Tariffs on Turkey

President Donald Trump  announced Friday  he's given the go-ahead to double steel and aluminum tariffs on Turkey.

That will bring those tariffs up to a 20 percent tax on aluminum and a 50 percent one on steel.

This tariff increase is just the latest step in the ongoing clash between the U.S. and Turkey.

U.S. officials have been lobbying Turkey to release an American pastor who's been detained there for nearly two years.

Andrew Brunson's accused of terrorism and espionage and faces  up to 35 years  in prison if convicted.  The Trump administration's already  sanctioned two  Turkish government officials in response to Brunson's detention.

A Turkish delegation flew to Washington earlier this week to discuss Brunson with a State Department official, but  CNBC reports  "little to no progress" was made during that meeting.
