President Trump delivered for America's working class when he announced he will stand up for American industry and stop predatory foreign trade practices.
The era of American trade surrender is coming to an end — and elites are not happy about it. Almost immediately, they announced they would fight the president's efforts to help folks on Main Street.
Enough is enough. It's time for Congress to stand with American workers, not Communist China.
To U.S. Congress:
America's steel and aluminum industries are under attack from unfairly traded imports. President Trump recently announced he would be taking action after the Commerce Department released the findings of its nine-month investigation into the impact of surging imports on our economic and national security.
The Commerce Department conducted a full investigation and determined that steel and aluminum imports are "weakening our internal economy" and threaten to impair U.S. national security. Accordingly, Secretary Wilbur Ross recommended the President "take immediate action."
Communities across America are hurting and key defense industrial base capabilities are at risk. Traditional trade measures are not up to the task and years of global talks have accomplished little but empty promises. We need bold action to support American steel and aluminum.
I'm asking you to stand with steel and aluminum workers, and support the recently announced tariffs to restore sanity to global markets and put our world-class manufacturers on a level playing field.
