(Worthy News) - President Trump is urging Americans feeling the pinch from international trade policy disputes, as well as congressional Republicans who fear his tariffs will wipe out the economic boom right before the midterm elections, to endure the pain just a little bit longer.
Trade wars were there to be won, Trump said Thursday, citing the reopening of a U.S. Steel plant in Granite City, Ill., after the imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs as the kind of “great victory” for American workers a change in trade policy could make possible.
“After years of shutdowns and cutbacks, today the blast furnace here in Granite City is blazing bright, workers are back on the job, and we are once again pouring new American steel back into the spine of our country,” he said in a wide-ranging speech at the facility, where employees praised the president for saving their jobs.
