House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., is calling on the White House to take a more "surgical" approach to tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, CBS News is reporting.

"There is clearly abuse occurring, clearly there is overcapacity dumping in transshipping of steel and aluminum by some countries, particularly China, but I think the smarter way to go is to make it more surgical and more targeted."

President Donald Trump has said he will institute a 25 percent tariff on steel imports and a 10 percent tariff on aluminum imports.

Ryan said Trump's plan was "more prone to retaliation."

And Ryan's spokeswoman AshLee Strong said the speaker is "urging the White House to not advance with the plan. The new tax reform law has boosted the economy and we certainly don't want to jeopardize those gains."

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the network news: "We have a great relationship with Speaker Ryan, We're going to continue to have one but that doesn't mean we have to continue to agree on everything. The president has been committed and talked about this for many years."
