Blast furnaces stood idle at U.S. Steel’s facility in Granite City, Ill., in 2017. U.S. Steel says it will restart one blast furnace at the site to handle higher demand in light of President Trump’s proposed steel tariffs. Photo: Luke Sharrett/Bloomberg News

Immediate, and definite benefit. Naturally, dems condemn it because they hate this country.

Naturally the media will stay mum on the 500 jobs as well, they hate Trump.

I am sure that the 4 major Democrats in Ill-Annoy (Rauner, Madigan, Durbin, and Duckworth) are fully opposed to this... If Trump is for it, these 4 knuckleheads will be against it.

I hope Republic does the same in the Cleveland Flats. They do still have some action in Lorraine.

Assuredly, somewhere...somebody is accusing Trump of subsidizing US Steel as a result of the tariffs.

Progressive logic being what it is.

This is aside from my view that this is also a national security matter (infrastructure & industry supporting, among other things, defense).

Here’s what’s happening to what used to be US Steel South Works in Chicago. It was huge in the day, and many, many, many families were financed by those jobs.
