BRUSSELS—The European Union fired its first shot Friday against U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs, launching a World Trade Organization challenge and vowing swift duties on American exports, in a sign that the bloc would go blow-for-blow with President Donald Trump over trade.

Brussels says Washington’s measures are “pure” protectionism. With its WTO complaint, it is challenging the U.S. national-security justification for Mr. Trump’s levies, in an unusual rift between the trans-Atlantic allies.
