From the Document: "The trade practices of U.S. trading partners and the U.S. trade deficit are a focus of the Trump Administration. Citing these and other concerns, the President has imposed tariff increases under three U.S. laws: [1] Section 201 of the Trade Act of 1974 (Table 1) on U.S. imports of washing machines and solar products; [2] Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 (Table 2) on U.S. imports of steel and aluminum, and potentially motor vehicles/parts and titanium sponge (the President decided not to impose tariffs on uranium imports, after an investigation); and [3] Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 (Table 3) on U.S. imports from China."
