WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement on the decision to impose tariffs on aluminum and steel imports from Canada, Mexico, and the European Union:

“I disagree with this decision. Instead of addressing the real problems in the international trade of these products, today’s action targets America’s allies when we should be working with them to address the unfair trading practices of countries like China. There are better ways to help American workers and consumers. I intend to keep working with the president on those better options.”
