Trump Spares Uranium Imports From National Security Duties

Law360 (July 13, 2019, 6:42 AM EDT) -- President Donald Trump declared late Friday that U.S. reliance on foreign uranium does not pose a national security threat and declined to set new tariffs on those imports, marking a rare instance of restraint from a White House that has aggressively and creatively enforced the nation’s trade laws.

Trump’s decision handed a loss to domestic uranium miners that petitioned the government to crack down on foreign competitors last year using the same Cold War-era statute that the White House used to set sweeping tariffs on steel and aluminum in the name of national security.
