In retaliation for the Trump administration announcing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Mexico and much of the rest of the world, Mexico Tuesday imposed a series of tariffs against U.S. exports to its market valued at $3 billion.

Mexico released an official list Tuesday, which included agricultural items such as cheeses, apples, potatoes, cranberries, and a number of ham, pork and sausage products.

The tariffs range between 15% and 25%, and could raise the price of USA goods by that amount, cutting deeply into USA exports to its neighbor.

USA stocks, apart from those of steel and aluminum producers, have fallen sharply in response to Trump's recent tariff announcements and other actions against trading partners.

Threatening such a change could be another effort to advance the negotiations in order to secure a congressional vote on a revised deal by the end of the year, according to worldwide law firm Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg.

Canada has also announced plans to retaliate with tariffs of up to 25% on almost $13 billion of USA products, set to take effect on July 1. Updating the risk factors faced by the Issaquah, Wash. -based company, Costco said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing that "changes and uncertainties related to government fiscal and tax policies including increased duties, tariffs, or other restrictions" could "adversely affect demand for our products and services".

Canada is threatening to hit 128 American products with steep tariffs on $12.8 billion worth of USA goods. And it will put tariffs on some larger ticket items such as sailboats, washing machines, dish washers and lawn mowers. USA denim, bourbon, motorcycles, peanut butter, motor boats and cigarettes will cost more in Europe as a result.

"A trade war doesn't spare anyone", Macron said.
