I’m pretty sure Trump’s whole “Tariff” thing is meant to create some kind of “Leverage” ... Real or imagined ... as a prelude to renegotiating the NAFTA trade agreement as well as other trade agreements with other nations.

Ding-Ding-Ding - we have a winner. Johnny, what have they won for being the only person to play chess, not checkers?

Turns out that there are cans of pumpkin filling manufactured in China.

Read the labels and complain to the store and its upper management.

How nice it is to have a President who does what is best for the country instead of the globalists.
Very refreshing.

It would be entertaining if the LSM were really interested in investigations.

They could lay out all of the worldwide tariffs and other restrictions on Steel Trading.

Probably because almost every industry who exports is liable to retaliation for the steel and aluminum tariffs.

Actually the opposite is true...every American exporting industry will likely see a boost as a result of Trump's willingness to take this action.

Countries that want to export to the US on favorable terms will now have to demonstrate comparable purchases of US products.

That's the power that comes from controlling the largest consumer market in the world.

No country will take advantage of the United States anymore.

If I were a US “industry” that had sold out America to re-tooling and manufacturing overseas, I’d be pissed too.

The amount steel tariffs would raise the price of a new car? $30-$40.

A $330 million Boeing 777 Dreamliner will cost an extra $25,000.

Minor correction, but the 777 is not the Dreamliner. The 787 is the Dreamliner. Would be sort of an insignificant distinction except that the fuselage and wings of the 787 are made out of carbon fiber and other composites, whereas the more traditional 777 fuselage and wings are aluminum.

Thank-you for the interesting clarification; much appreciated.

It must be fun flying either one of those aircraft.

Well, that and it increasing the cost of steel, which will increase the cost of their products and reduce their sales - regardless of who they buy the steel from.

That said, if tariffs are used tactically, and the diplomacy is good, brief tariffs can help in the long run. In the short term - or however long the tariffs last - it’s like giving a tax break to one guy and raising the cost to everyone else.

Not sure - but we only export 2% of all the steel exported - 1/12th as much as China...our steel industry was literally decimated by some set of events and one must imagine that imbalanced trade deals had a lot to do with it.

I thought the same thing. It is all tied together.

Not those industries that the other countries retaliate against in response to these tariffs.

And what about our export market? Aren't countries going to say if you want to export to us you have to demonstrate being open to our exports as well?

Every other country in the world that makes steel has an import tariff. Every one of them.

Do other countries have tariffs on importing US Steel?

Of course they do, how is it you could think otherwise? Were you born yesterday?
