Mr Trump accused Argentina and Brazil of "presiding over a massive devaluation" - with exports of both countries being now cheaper and more competitive due to the weak currency.
U.S. President Donald Trump ambushed Brazil and Argentina on Monday, announcing he would restore tariffs on U.S. steel and aluminum imports from the two countries in apparent retaliation for currency weakness he said was hurting U.S. farmers.

"Argentina also and I gave them a big break on tariffs, but now I'm taking that break off because its very unfair to our manufacturers and very unfair to our farmers".
Trump has repeatedly assailed the Fed chairman, Jerome Powell, over his leadership and for not cutting interest rates as much as the Republican president would like. A source familiar with Brasilia's reaction rejected the US claim of currency manipulation, noting the central bank was working to lift the real.
Argentina's production ministry said in a statement the country has exported around $520 million in steel and aluminum to the United States so far this year after exporting $700 million in 2018. It has laid off workers and shut down some of its blast furnaces.
