Business leaders are pushing for a meeting with Trump to concise him on the negative repercussions of the tariffs on companies that use steel and aluminum.
Trump said during a White House meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday: "We're not backing down, I don't think you're going to have a trade war."
