WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee said on Monday that President Donald Trump should tailor proposed tariffs to exempt all "fairly traded" steel and aluminium, certainly from Canada and Mexico.

"My view is the president should exempt all fairly traded steel and aluminium, from every country that trades fairly - certainly, Canada and Mexico," Brady told reporters. "Canada is a huge customer for the U.S.; Mexico is a key trading partner."

He said he would keep working with Trump "to help him tailor this for the maximum good effect."
