Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Friday said U.S. President Donald Trump told him that he did not expect to subject Canadian steel and aluminum to face tariffs on national security grounds.

Trudeau's remarks come a day after Trump told reporters he was considering ways to address what he calls unacceptable dumping of foreign steel into the US market, adding they could come in the form of quotas and tarrifs. "It'll stop", he told reporters on Air Force One on July 12, the transcript shows.

"There are two ways: quotas and tariffs. Maybe I'll do both".

Steel stocks rallied on the news, recovering some of the year-to-date declines in the sector.

Trump also said he would invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to the White House.
