  1. protectionism never works – lets remember the corporate eletites ran to Asia to get cheap labour to produce american goods and americans ran to Walmart to buy those products – when you buy made in China you are voting for communism against capitalism – so Asia makes our stuff and we lose jobs at home but Walmart has cheap stuff so our falling standard of living and falling wages are not so bad for a few decades since we can still get cheap walmart made in china stuff but wait we are losing our middle class during those decades and wow after four decades we are no longer the biggest GDP anymore China is and wow our younger millineal generation are not making enough money to buy a car and a house in fact lots of those 30 year olds are still living at home with elderly parents and trying to pay student loans at stupid interest rates during a time when the prime lending rate is nearly Zero for the big lenders but they charge my daughter 8 % so we know we are getting the short end – and when the financial system was about to collapse the public bailed them out with Socialism payout – America is a Socialist country – otherwise why do we bail out the banks? why do we bail out corps with a tax cut even as GM closes factory i worked in for 20 years taking my tax money and going to China.
    Time to wake up! no more corp welfare Amazon does not need a tax cut and does not need a city or state to gift them a billion dollars to move there give me a break.

  2. Leftist? It is not. It is conservative. The type of tariff applied is an import tariff. This one is for protection from low prices from China. It's goal is to make China's steel and aluminum more expensive so that American companies buy American steel and Aluminum to make automobiles and other CO2 emitting greenhouse gasses when the world is already facing global warming.

    A tariff for imports is paid to customs. Customs is a government agency. The money is called a duty.

    The import tariff is usually countered by the export tariff. That says HA! Got ya back! Now you're products will cost you more to sell here, and the products won't sell here.. they'll be more expensive.

    China has set an export tarriff to counter Trump's very stupid trade war. Why is it stupid? Because before WW1 tariffs were all around the world. That fight between Germany and the Allies. After WWI, more tariffs were placed on Germany because Germany lost. Those tariffs caused World War 2.

    There has been free trade from 1948 until 1999. In 1999 the World Trade Organization was formed. That WTO sets trade policy. The WTO is 'no tariffs'. Trumps plan leaves the US out of the WTO, so from 1948 to 2018, 70 years,the world has seen no trade barriers.

    Why? Because they suck. They always lead to war!

    Why are wars stupid? Wars kill people including women and children.

    Then why did Trump start this war?

    Because he's stupid!

    HAS TRUMP GONE MAD???? THIS IS THE ROAD TO HELL! VOTE HIM GONE!!

  3. Please show evidence of dumping practices. China only gave away a gift of low priced steel. This was to keep the peace, not start a war!

    National security? Were we threatened somehow? What was threatened or all-in-your-mind?

    If we need to protect our country, we should tax the rich and major corporations to lower the federal deficit. We have plenty of jets, bombers, bombs, etc., and more than any other nation. Giving the rich tax cuts because they had no market, didn't help the U.S. It hurt it! The Federal deficit hit a record high this year, and now a few days of government shut down is planned to help the debt.

    And just wait a minute. What really caused the lack of industry's confidence in performance? Not high enough profits due to taxes? I don't think so. I think it was just a political ploy. Also, an effect needs a cause and it takes time. Near the end of Obama's last term, Obama said "the time is right" and injected a lot of money into the money supply! OBAMA caused this short term confidence in the economy! The money was devalued, so everyone got raises. THAT is what caused the confidence.

    What has Mr. Paris-Accord-Is-Not-Fair done? The following:

    increased the federal deficit to alarming levels.
    started a trade war with China (who was normalizing with us due Obama's efforts)
    pissed off Iran ONE MORE TIME
    Insulted Canada (Thank god they have haven't retaliated with a tariff of their own)
    Insulted nearly every nation in the world with his spoiled brat attitude!
    Gave to the rich, took from the poor

    Now tell me. What do you think the rest of the world thinks of the U.S. now? You're right — somebody here in America isn't quite right in the head.

    Methinks that by 2020, the start of climate change will be very evident, and the rest of the world will blame us, because we would not agree to help out in this very important problem, and the U.S.'s population will see that the current administration is out of his fuckin mind! In other words, Trump Gone. The economic confidence of 2018 will be history, and people will be angry all over the world. We will suffer for Trump's stupidity.

    IMPEACH TRUMP NOW!!

  4. Ill take a hit. It will be better for our country , jobs, & farmers..It will be a bit rough but we will weather it. WE ARE AMERICA. WONT NEED FOREIGN STEEL.

  5. I'm confused! Didn't the US borrow a lot of money from China? Why piss off one of your debtors with tariffs?

  6. The LEFT wing and the RIGHT wing are from the same bird. America needs to wake up and understand this!! Look at the FBI and Hillary.. Nothing done.. Now tariffs to sink the economy….wait and see??

  7. If this was abomanation doing the dealing, clinton, bush they would bring lube and condoms and let OUR ALLIES SCREW US!. WATCH AND SEE A REAL MAN DO BUSINESS AND TREAT OUR FRIENDS LIKE THEY DID TO US!. With friends like this we need more enemys. WATCH AND SEE NAYSAYERS. GOD BLESS

  8. he wasnt elected by the people. He lost that. He was elected by the electoral college, which has nothing to do with USAns, much less americans

  9. I wish that Trump would just stick to his tacky real estate and failing businesses. He is really messing up America!

  10. Steel end user will continue to purchase foreign Steel! There are many types of steel and those that use will stick with the sources they are already using. American Steel Manufactures have raised their prices the current 25% tariff!

  11. I am a huge Trump supporter. I just bought 1018 carbon and 303 stainless steel. The price has gone up 20 to 30 percent since the Tarrifs were announced. Its gonna be this way fro a while until things get back up and running over here.

  12. If tariffs damages these evil, EU Nazi's, then any tariffs have got to be worth placing on the EU. The only bad thing is that the tariffs are not high enough, they should be 75%.

  13. Many American companies will lose profits and jobs as more tariffs on US goods are placed by other countries. Specifically, farmers who ship food all over the world. And of course, automation is already killing US jobs, and the tariffs do nothing about that. Trump has a noble goal, but his methods to get there are blind and stupid. The companies that actually do make money for the US make loads of money abroad, and they'll lose profits and jobs when their products get tariffs overseas as a retaliation against Trump's tariff. Nobody wins, except for a few steel and aluminum companies that are basically unable to compete anyways, because they're not doing their best like their foreign neighbors are. You're basically elevating losers and hurting winners with this tariff.

    That's why this tariff is a tariff made by morons, for morons. It hurts American profits and jobs, it won't actually bring jobs back, and all it will do is help companies that aren't doing the best to compete, which disrupts the very idea of free market trade and capitalism. Where else have we seen an ideology that elevates losers and hurts winners? Oh wait, that's right, the socialists and the SJWs. Trump has literally gone SJW. He's hurting companies that are so good they're competing overseas, in favor of companies that aren't competitive, and that's aside from the fact that he's accepted the SJW mantra that media such as movies and video games causes people to become more violent.

    He's literally become everything that he swore to fight. Instead of draining the swamp, he got infected by it.

    Wouldn't a general tariff on Chinese goods actually get him what he wants without hurting our allies in Asia or Europe?

    And guess who supports Trump in this matter? THE DEMOCRATS!

    So yeah, Trump has gone over to the SJWs. Especially when the actual fucking SJWs are now taking his side against the Republicans:

  14. McMillan you wanted to know the results of Donald Trump and when you want Push his ass

    did you leave a shity trail and all the flights going to be right behind

  15. Chinese steel comprise only 2% of US steel imports. Canada sells 16% of all American steel imports. Is chinese steel really a concern? Is America really dependent on chinese steel? Is it not more sense to say America is dependent on Canadian steel.

    Aren't these tariff the result of more gut instinct and less on knowledge.

  16. A and B are friends both exchange goods and both have family to feed .but B charges for goods and A does not charge because it's free economy Sorry Its called Slave economy.

EXCELLENT JOB SO FAR FOR DONALD j TRUMP AND TEAM PLAYERS!! Have A Great Day!

  18. We have a trade deficit with Canada, China, Mexico, Japan and Germany. The Tariff would have to be enough to increase manufacturing in the US not just price hikes or its for not. I'll pay a little more to help Americans get back to work. Its better then taxes for welfare. Taxes for welfare: Jobs = 3 civil servants for 1 welfare check.

  19. No defense contractor can use foreign metal in U.S. DOD weapon systems. I know this because we are required by law and we verify our suppliers comply. The problem is suppliers in the U.S are shrinking.
