    This is embarrassing. Trump is now inviting steel workers to talk. One guy said this will bring 300 jobs to my city.

    25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aliminimum. Mexico and Canada will be exempt if a nafta he likes passes.

    He keeps talking about the trade deficit with China. This does almost nothing with China.

    No, but I don't think these tariffs are aimed at fixing trade. They appear to be aimed at critical industries.

    Trade between US-EU is far more lopsided in favor of the EU than trade between US-Mexico. South Korea has a trade surplus with China despite having a FTA with them.

    Nonetheless most trade around the world are supply chains with a pretty interconnected world, i think Trump and Co will be for a pretty rude awakening if they go through with tariffs.

    Specially because the biggest trade deficit of the US, which is oil, will never be tariffed.

    Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) will introduce legislation aimed at nullifying President Trump’s proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, a spokesman for the senator confirmed to The Daily Beast. The reaction highlights congressional Republicans’ frustrations with the president over the tariffs, which they warn could prompt an unwinnable trade war. “Congress cannot be complicit as the administration courts economic disaster,” Flake said. Republicans have also expressed concern that the tariffs could undermine their economic arguments to voters heading into the midterm elections later this year, especially on the heels of the GOP’s tax legislation. Flake acknowledged to The Daily Beast earlier this week that votes on trade policy are “tough” in Congress, adding: “Any trade deal before Congress will get politicized. It’ll be a shirts vs. skins kind of exercise.” It would take 67 votes in the Senate to override a presidential veto. —Andrew Desiderio

    Trump adlibbing his threat to Canada and Mexico about the waiver to them being about NAFTA will come back to bite Trump given he's using some obscure law that allows him executive powers to declare tariffs based on security issues. But he admitted it's really about trade imbalance - which is not a security issue the rule he used is meant for.

    All he did was sound like a mob boss trying to extort people. Hey, give me a good deal on NAFTA or I'll tariff your steel too.
