The International Trade Secretary has launched a review of tariffs against the US after an ongoing trade dispute.
The row dates back to when the UK was in the EU, with Britain and America seeking to de-escalate tensions following Brexit.
Ms Truss said: “We now have the power to shape these tariffs so they reflect UK interests, and are tailored to our economy.
“The UK will do whatever is necessary to protect our steel industry against illegal tariffs that could undermine British industry and damage our businesses.
“Ultimately, however, we want to deescalate these disputes so we can move forward and work closely with the US on issues like WTO reform and tackling unfair trade practices by non-market economies.”
