Mexico put tariffs on American products ranging from steel to pork and bourbon, retaliating against import duties on metals imposed by US President Donald Trump.

The list includes whisky, cheese, steel, bourbon, and pork.

Accordingly, Mexico will impose 20% to 25% tariffs on U.S. cheese, 20% on apples and potatoes, 20% on pork legs and shoulders and 25% on steel products, as reported by Reuters.

Analysts say the tariffs are designed to hit US Republican strongholds ahead of mid-term elections in November.

Trump last week levied tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from Mexico, Canada and the European Union, riling key US allies.
