So how does this work? Only tariff on raw metal stock? What about machined parts? Manufactured items that contain some metal?
They' re brass I tell ya....
This is only the first shot!
I can only hope there are mechsnisms to keep China from ‘laundering’ their metal through Canada and mexico
BEST PRESIDENT EVAH
Guess who's got a Royal Flush?
Only buy domestic metal/pipe. Costs a little more, but better quality.
Dollars to doughnuts the cost of the wall will enter into the talks when it comes to Mexico’s tariff!
This Trump guy can play.
Brilliant play on Trump’s part in that he is leaving the door open to concessions by our trading partners. They will be forced to deal with us fairly.
Every time I listen to him, he sounds more and more like something we USED TO HAVE!!
It’s called MFN, for most-favored-Nation trading status.
What goes around keeps going around and eventually comes back.
If Americans can’t build it, we’ll do without.
But I’m betting we CAN build whatever we damn well please!
>>>So how does this work? Only tariff on raw metal stock? What about machined parts? Manufactured items that contain some metal?
Only on the primary metal. So now metal fabricators have to compete against foreign firms not subject to the tariff.
Ain’t he great?
