There aren't many things that Economists agree on, BUT

they ALL agree that 'protectionism', in world trade, is a YUUUUGE mistake.
SOOOO, guess what the Dotard's new policy is?
Yup, starting a world-wide 'Tariff War', that will hurt EVERYONE, as other countries WILL retaliate.
Thanks again, FOXSheep/Evangelicals, for electing the Pussy Grabber, who bankrupted his own businesses at least SIX times. Now, he's playing with our futures.
Just when we think 'It Can't Get Worse', it always does.
BTW, the biggest exporter of steel to the US is Canada, as he sends our neighbors to the North, another big F-U, after REALLY pissing off the Mexicans. Dotard, a one man wrecking crew....

Stocks plunge after Trump announces steel tariffs

The Dow dropped more than 500 points in mid-afternoon trading following the announcement, which traders saw as economic suicide, as other countries will follow suit, slapping tariffs on American products.
Analysts across the spectrum agree there will be retaliation, perhaps directed at politically relevant targets such as bourbon (produced in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's Kentucky), motorcycles (in House Speaker Paul Ryan's Wisconsin), and U.S. agricultural products.

The president's announcement drew immediate fire from farm-state Republican Ben Sasse, who derided Trump for proposing "a massive tax increase on American families." The Nebraska Republican added, "You'd expect a policy this bad from a leftist administration, not a supposedly Republican one."
