Trump Imposes 25% Tariff on Steel, 10% Aluminum In Possible Move To Target China (REACTION) (video)
Nearly 60 percent of American voters say imposing tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum is crucial to the United States? economic relationship with China. In a Morning Consult poll, 59 percent of Americans say it is important? that President Trump place tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, specifically from China, showing a wide range of support for the White House?s economic nationalist agenda.
About 66 percent of voters said shrinking America?s more than $375 billion trade deficit with China was key, as well as 56 percent who said they wanted to see the Trump administration challenge China?s leaders on intellectual property protection, and 44 percent who said they want China labeled as a currency manipulator.
Trump?s cracking down on China when it comes to trade is supported by 67 percent of Republicans, though trade globalists inside the White House such as Gary Cohn and Steve Mnuchin have attempted, but failed, to prevent the populist president from taking a tough stance on China.
On, Trump announced that he would eventually be putting a 25 percent tariff on imported steel and a ten percent tariff on imported aluminum, a move that is backed by the majority of Americans, according to the Morning Consult poll.
Trump spoke out defiantly Friday against global criticism of his plan to impose tariffs. When a country (USA) is losing many billions of dollars on trade with virtually every country it does business with, trade wars are good, and easy to win,? Trump wrote in an early morning tweet. Example, when we are down $100 billion with a certain country and they get cute, don?t trade anymore-we win big. It?s easy!? the president wrote.
