This is the first President that actually is pushing for “fair” trade. Certainly having the ability to manufacture our own steel is essential to our national security given the amount used in making the weaponry used by our military. Its also essential in making up bunkers, etc that may protect US citizens from harm should a conventional war ever come to our own shores. Having the ability to make our own steel is paramount to our own national security. Allowing other countries to impose high tariffs on steel and other essential materials and good while we have small or no tariff is simply unfair and will make the US industry uncompetitive. As a result those US businesses often go out of business. Free trade is very important in this world economy but FAIR trade is something we should negotiate with every agreement. Its amazing how our past Presidents literally gave away the store when it came to negotiating.
