WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Commerce Department has not yet submitted a final report to President Donald Trump on its investigation into whether imported vehicles and auto parts pose a national security risk, a department spokeswoman said Tuesday.

The report is a necessary step before Trump can act to impose new tariffs. Reuters reported on Nov. 12 that a draft report had been circulated among federal agencies for review after the probe was opened in May. A German magazine reported Trump could impose tariffs on imported cars next week citing EU sources.
