Trump Sticks With Tariffs Despite Opposition from Republican party
Last weekend President Trump dropped a bomb. The president announced the US would place a tariff on steel and aluminum imports.
On Tuesday Jesse Gary, the Executive Vice President at Century Aluminum, told Trish Regan on FOX Business Network that Century Aluminum will hire 300 new employees in western Kentucky thanks to Donald Trump’s announcement on tariffs this past week.
US Steel announced on Wednesday they will restart two blast furnaces and recall 500 employees in Granite City, Illinois following President Trump’s decision to tax steel and aluminum imports.
A total of 800 new US steel and aluminum jobs were announced in the last two days.
But the globalists don’t care.
They want to give other countries an advantage over US workers.
107 Republican (Globalist) lawmakers signed a letter to President Trump on Wednesday expressing concern over steel and aluminum tariffs.
The list included Speaker Paul Ryan who has repeatedly attacked the Republican president this week for standing up for working Americans.

But President Trump is sticking to his plan.
At the beginning of a meeting with his cabinet, President Trump was asked by a member of the media what he was going to do with his tariffs. He replied,
“I’m sticking with 10 and 25 initially. I’ll have a right to go up or down depending on the country. And I’ll have a right to drop out countries or add countries. We just want fairness because we have not been treated fairly by other countries.”
