Trump Set to Announce 90-Day Deferral for Some Tariff Payments
President Donald Trump approved a proposal pushed for by some businesses to delay payment of certain tariffs by three months, according to people familiar with the matter.
The announcement to defer levies for so-called most-favored nation duties will come in the form of an executive order, one of the people said. The order, which could come as soon as this week, would give the Treasury Department the authority to direct Customs and Border Protection to delay collecting tariffs on those imports for 90 days.
