  • More US steel produced means more people working for decent pay. Prices only increase by 0.3 cents for a can of soda and even less if they use US steel

  • Employment is a bigger issue than GDP in America right now. The more employment, the less necessity for welfare. Tariffs help employment.

  • This tariff will promote the manufacturing of steel in the U.S. which will help the U.S. become more independent from foreigners for their goods

The cost of the tariff would increase the price of anything made of steel cars, appliances etc. and passed on to the people who buy them. Tariff is a stupid solution and will not work.

On one hand, it checks Chinese domination of the market at a point when China is teetering between being the world's top economy and falling far back down the ladder. On the other hand, a few thousand new jobs mean nothing compared to the higher prices and ensuing trade wars. If it works, it is a good plan. If it fails, it is a bad plan. I will let history decide.
