  • Kushner is true that you got a1/2 billion dollars in loans from companies. after W.H. mettings with them isn't that conflict of interest fox news?

  • Good.

  • He announced something today before they even had all the details??? Just another day in the WH…

  • and trump is eight dammit! foreign steel and alundum products are pure garbage! period! americans make the best products in the world!

  • Tariffs are a tax, and even though Dems are worse on taxes, Republicans are now ok with higher taxes?

  • I know how it feels to loose a job after 7 years because a Chinese company dumped their product at a loss for years just to put us under. MAGA 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  • Lol its going to ignite the trade war that we are loosing? BS

  • Going all 1895 on these motherfuckers and shit. Go old white people!!!!

  • How will it cause us to lose jobs when American companies will be able to compete now and will hire more people, not to mention they will have to pay taxes on the increased profit. This is a good move. We've been ripped off for too long. It's time these car companies and other companies start using American steel!

  • China is dumping steel at below cost price across the world destroying steel plants , once China has the monopoly and all foreign steel plants the west are screwed

  • And the stock market plummeted . . . thanks Trump.

  • Nice…..and screw the stock market….There will be no tariffs with UK,not a penny…and Ms.Trudeau in Canada,keep ur powder dry and worry about peoplekind.And let a businessman wheeler dealer…wheel and deal…

  • Obama and democrats taxed and regulated our steel mills to China along with other American factories.

  • Meanwhile China is moving ahead of the US in the high tech and renewable energy industries. But seriously , America- aluminum- now that's the future.

  • China isn't even one of the top 10 importers of steel. Yet people here going "woo..we will show the Chinese". There is a reason why he loves supporters who are not college educated. They are easy to trick and are too lazy to research. And they get angry as to why other people think they are dumb. Well hope you can eat,drink and drive steel.

  • Great news!! We will get our jobs back, .better wages, able pay higher prices, better quality products.

  • FUCK China

  • the big US steel companies get a big tax cut, now they will have the monopoly over steel without competition, now consumers get ready to pay high prices for steel………….suckers haha

  • Of course, that will make it cost much more to continue bombarding us with aluminum in the chemtrails. It currently has been costing taxpayers over 10 Billion a year to be poisoned by our government. Now it will cost more. But that's OK, there's always enough money for war, death, agent orange, pesticides, napalm, chemtrails, poison vaccines, FEMA camps and 1.6 Billion rounds of ammunition to keep the American people in line and suppress any uprising. Of course that's unlikely to happen after they take your guns. Yes, they're coming for them. Hate to say, I told you so.

  • Wasn’t Hillary against Chinese steel?

  • Funny, and strange why they left out that the stock market plummeted minutes after Trump announcing the tariffs.

  • Smoot-Hawley, revisited?

    Tariffs are a tough call. Foreign interests can dump cheap products and cripple key industries. It takes time to rebuild your manufacturing if foreign interests later decide to cut you off, or you get so dependent on their products that you're helpless when they dump pure trash products on you.

    I'm generally suspicious of tariffs, though. They can prop up inefficient industries, at the expense of all the rest of us. And they drive up the cost of everything associated with that industry. Outwardly, it's a tax on imports. Inwardly, it's a tax on all consumers, which of course hurts the poorest among us the most.

    And aNOTHER thing! I always felt like it was only fair to lay tariffs or fees (or better yet, just don't do trade with) on countries whose products are cheaper because they're abusing their labor.

  • How can this protect American industries? American corporations are not interested in Making America Great Again. They care only about profit, as do other countries, but they have slave labor and you can't compete with that. If they can get a material or have a product made cheaper somewhere else, guess where they're getting it from? The only way they will use American steel or aluminum is if you ban importation of them. Then they will move to where they can get it and ship the finish product back, like they do now. The end result of this, if it works at all, will be the American consumer will pay more to make up any extra expense or losses and they can't afford that because they're all working at Walmart or a fast food chain. The only way to stop it is to ban foreign imports and that will never happen. Why do you think war is always on the agenda. It solves everything.

  • Heavy Metal!!!!

  • Bring on the trade war….. PLEASE!!!!! We do not NEED most of the CRAP that is imported into this country!!!

  • More local inputs=more jobs! Doing what government needs to do to create jobs. Australia clamped down on dumping of these products years ago! 👍👍👍

  • The tariffs are illegal according to NAFTA. The tribunal will rule against the US, as they always have in the past, but by that time Trump will have forgotten all about it and will be tweeting about some beauty queen he doesn't like. How many times does the right wing have to see this scenario before they get it?

  • And as for guns, he's already forgotten about that. He's backed away from arming teachers, he's not sure about raising the age to 21, he in fact will do nothing. He's now onto steel and aluminum (That's right John George, aluminum, not alundum).

  • Ivanka trump is next 😎😂

  • Doing the job that other presidents don't want to do

  • Donald trump

  • Get these piss poor quality products out of our markets, piss poor ! Difference between balsa and fir. QUALITY !

  • IN THE PAST,, FOREIGN NATIONS have " enjoyed at an enormous PROFIT " buying AMERICAN MADE STEEL AND SCAP STEEL PRODUCTS ",,,
    SHIPPING SAID PRODUCTS to their own NATIONS,, BREAKING IT DOWN ( then re-smelting in WITH the American products " THEIR OWN WEAKER ORE PRODUCTS ), then REMANUFACTURING THE END RESULTING STEEL ( JUNK PRODUCTS ), then SHIPPING DAID JUNK STEEL " BACK TO AMERICA " and re-selling that SAME JUNK STEEL BACK TO AMERICAN MANUFACTURERS,,
    WHOM IN TURN. " ARE FORCED TO BUY SAID AND PROVEN " JUNK STEEL AND ALUMINUM " for manufacture of AMERICAN MADE PRODUCTS,,
    WHICH " FAILS TENSILE STRENGTH STANDARDS " METALURGICALLY SET IN THIS NATION IN THE EARLY PART OF THE 1940'S and 50'S ( after ww ll).
    This is how AND WHY AMERICAN MANUFACTURING COMPANIES gets a bad reputation FOR MANUFACTURING " SHODDY PRODUCTS " that do not, and can not STAND UP TO normal wear and uses for which the product's were sold to do.
    YES,, " WE WILL HAVE TO PAY MORE FOR STEEL AND ALUMINUM ",,,
    But it will be BETTER STRONGER STEEL AND ALUMINUM TOO!!
    EXPECT " SCRAP PRICES " FOR BOTH STEEL AND ALUMINIUM " TO RAISE SHARPLY " VERY SOON!!
    CHINA' S " FREE RIDE TO WEALTH " OFF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAS " COME TO A SCREECHING HALT " !!!
    YOU WANT QUALITY,,,
    " BUY AMERICAN MADE " !!!

  • ONE MORE THING " DRASTICALLY NEEDS DONE " !!!
    WHAT IS IT??!!
    " CASTRATE THE EPA FROM THE TOP TO THE LOWEST LEVEL POSSIBLE ",,,
    DRAW THEM " DOWN TO THEIR KNEES " and never let them RISE UP AGAIN to dictate to the AMERICAN MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY " WHAT WE CAN AND CANNOT DO " regarding our NATIONAL PRODUCTIONS OF OUR INDUSTRIAL GOODS, ( WHICH DETERMINES OUR NATIONWIDE GDP PERCENTAGES OVERALL)!!!
    RIGHT NOW,, AMERICA'S GDP PERCENTAGE VALUES ARE AT AN ALL TIME " LOW " OF 3.5%.
    3.5%,, WHEN THEY " SHOULD BE " up to 5.5 or even 6%!!!
    YEAH,, GET AMERICA'S GDP RATINGS PERCENTAGES UP TO 6% NATIONWIDE,, and you WILL SEE AMERICA " GREAT AGAIN " !!!

  • LMAO!! repubes acting as if they were rich yet red states are the poorest among the country.

  • They should have done this YEARS ago, before our great steel industry fled our country.

  • Aluminum in particular, requires electricity and lots of it.  U.S. electricity should cost less; but China, Japan and others built nuclear power and America is far less competitive than it should be vs electricity.  Tariffs may nudge better behavior from others, but electricity cost is key in the long-run.  +++  Microchips are at least as critical to national defense and economic power as heavy industry.  Already many believe China can switch-off chips they built (which is virtually all chips).

  • When President Trump gets done with the playing field "flat earth" will prevail, literally and physically.

  • Before anyone panics about Trump's tariff talk, you have to remember that the Flip-Flopper-in-Chief will change his position on any issue on a day by day basis.  Over and over he has proven this.  He will say something on Tuesday,  completely reverse himself on Wednesday, and then come up with something completely different on Thursday.  To be fair, as most Americans know Trump is ignorant and only parrots whatever the last person who had his ear told him.

  • TRUMPHOLE COMPLETELY OWNED BY THE EVIL NRA AND PUTIN(FAKE FOX NEWS!!)

  • But Canada, not China, sends tons of steel and alumina to the US..

  • Hilarious when Republicans/GOP are even against this, but lowly class citizens like in the comments here, welcome this change. Y'all are fucking stupid.

  • Why a tariff on Canada? Last year, over 10 million tons of steel, worth over $11.8 billion, was traded between our two countries, with Canada shipping $5.87 billion to the U.S (5.4 M tons), and the U.S. shipping $5.96 billion (4.7M tons) to Canada. Canada is the #1 destination of U.S. steel exports, representing over 50% of U.S. total exports.

  • This may help a few US steel companies, but it will hurt a lot of other US companies that use steel and aluminum in their products. The higher costs of course will be passed along to consumers. President Bush tried that in 2002, it's didn't work out too well for Americans workers or consumers.

    But history shows that imposing tariffs to protect one industry often results in pain for another. According to industry groups, about 6.5m people are employed in the US in businesses that use steel and aluminum. After President George W Bush imposed tariffs on steel imports in 2002, a study found that the move had cost the US about 200,000 jobs. 

    Under President Bush. "The 'Joint Remedy', which calls for tariffs of 15-20 percent on most products, would slash affected imports by 20 percent. Domestic prices and output would increase slightly, resulting in somewhat larger revenues for the steel industry. About 3,500 actual and potential jobs could be "saved" but at an annual cost of $2 billion to the steel users-or $584,000 per job saved."

    Of course to Trump there will be winners, (some steel workers), and losers, (the unknown thousands that will lose their jobs), oh well.

  • Drama Queen Donald Drumpf is the Dumbest US President Ever! Donald Drumpf proves the point That Money Cannot Buy You An Education!!! What a Moron!

  • afraid of trade wars? don‘t worry, the allies will give up portions of their profits to white house and erase the costs of tariffs to the consumers. they (japan, south keroa, taiwan, saudi arabia, iraq, nato countries, canada) wouldn‘t dare to increase their prices or retaliate otherwise the trump administration will withdraw the u.s. troops. without the president‘s protection, their enemies are most likely to attack them that they can‘t even survive. just like maxico will ultimately pay for the wall. america first is a mafia style.

  • Uneducated people will never understand how the trade deals have hurt America and the American worker…all they know is the can buy cheap shit that will fall apart before they get it home…fools and uneducated…Trump did not get to be a Billionaire business man by being stupid in business…so shut the fuck up and let this business man bring this economy back to what it use to be.

  • This is one of the main reasons trump wanted to be president to deal with foreign trade…why is anyone surprised he is fighting for American steel industry…Fuck Canada and Britain steel industry's American steel and Aluminum industry will come first for Trump and the rest of the world will like it and suck it up…we have been kissing ass for decades and loosing our economic base…fuck em…GO..Trump!!! make the world understand the United States will kick your ass for fucking us and our American workers…

  • When your parents punished your ass for fucking up you did not like it…but most of us are better for the tasking we got…Trump will be the worlds big daddy for a while and he will have to spank a few country's for fucking up…they will be just fine and like it…

  • People there are no easy solutions. But facts are facts. We have a 800 billion dollar trade deficit. And they aren't sanctions. They are tariffs. We have to do something. And Trump is doing it.
