Trump's tariffs show you get what you voted for

More importantly, Trump could ask for quotas and tariffs on a wider range of Chinese products, including furniture, auto parts and electronics, if the USA government concludes that China has engaged in unfair intellectual property and industrial policy practices.

The president has long considered himself his own best consultant, saying during the presidential campaign: "I'm speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I've said a lot of things". The bill slashed taxes for 90 percent of working Americans and reduced the tax burden for businesses across the board. Slapping aluminum and steel imports with tariffs of this magnitude is misguided.

"It has been an honor to serve my country and enact pro-growth economic policies to benefit the American people, in particular the passage of historic tax reform", Cohn said in a statement on his resignation.

The White House regimen included a weekly trade policy meeting in the Roosevelt Room where aides with opposing views could talk through ideas to ensure recommendations brought to the president were fully vetted and legally sound.

"We urge you to reconsider the idea of broad tariffs to avoid unintended negative consequences to the USA economy and its workers", 107 House Republicans wrote in a letter to Trump on Wednesday.

"We're going to have sensible relations with our allies", he told CNBC, claiming that Mr Trump's policy was well "thought through". Other congressional leaders have called for measures that would directly target China rather than imposing a blanket steel tariff, which has been pushed by Navarro. The president based his action on a report from the Commerce Department, led by Ross, that the U.S. needed a self-sufficient steel industry in case of a major war. Bush withdrew the tariffs eventually when threatened by trading partners with similar tariffs against American products produced in important battleground states such as Florida and MI.

An economics professor interviewed by ABC News provided a picture of what might be expected from the tariffs. I think those days are over, personally.

The report goes on to state that consumers can expect a price increase for products that are comprised of metals with tariffs on them, such as canned goods and appliances. Trump recently declared that "trade wars are good, and easy to win".

President Trump has reiterated that he is not "backing down" on the tariffs. "Steel is steel, you don't have steel you don't have a country", Trump said. By contrast, the tariff decision is a leadership fiasco that has cost Trump a key ally in Gary Cohn. "Today I'm defending America's national security by placing tariffs on foreign imports of steel and aluminum". "We're finally taking action to correct this long overdue problem".
