US President Donald Trump opted Monday to hold fire on imposing steel and aluminum tariffs on the European Union, Canada and Mexico for 30 days, the White House announced -- offering key allies a reprieve during ongoing negotiations.

Washington has also reached a deal with South Korea on steel imports, and "agreements in principle" with Argentina, Australia and Brazil, "the details of which will be finalized shortly," the White House said.
