Erdogan urged Washington to give up the misguided notion that bilateral relations could be "asymmetrical" and realise that Turkey had alternatives "before it is too late". Financial upheaval risks further destabilizing an already volatile region.
The White House said Mr Trump had authorised them under a section of United States trade law that allows for tariffs on national security grounds.
