|The United Kingdom must not be allowed President of the United States, the shadow international trade secretary said, the US tariffs on metals imports.
Labor's Barry Gardiner said the move to impose levies on aluminum and steel from Europe was "based on a lie".
He said the EU should work decisively on counter-measures.
International Trade Secretary Liam Fox said he hoped the US would think again and "tit-for-tat" action was an option.

The tariffs of 25% on steel and 10% on aluminum, which affect the EU, Canada and Mexico, come into effect on Friday.
Mr Trump first announced the plans in March but granted some exemptions while negotiated countries. He is justified by the prices of the global supply of glut.
Mr Gardiner said these claims were "based on a lie" and it was simply an act of economic protectionism.
He said he would need to be "cowed" and should "proportionate" action through the World Trade Organization.
"We believe in a multilateral rules-based system," he told BBC Radio 4's Today program. President Trump does not. He wants to break up that system.
"We have to do this, and we are not susceptible to intimidation, threats and bullying that he is putting in place."
