Turkey announced Thursday it's imposing retaliatory tariffs worth $267 million on U.S. goods.

According to CNN, Turkey's targeting U.S. imports such as coal, paper, walnuts, tobacco, rice, whiskey and cars. 

Turkey's economy minister said the country tried to negotiate with the U.S. but that talks failed.
