      If hooray for our side is all you want to hear then he did a good job. But he avoided the plain economic truth. It’s gonna cost us consumers a lot of money.

      He could have HONESTLY said, : Yes, tariffs mean we will all be paying more for steel and aluminum, at least for a while, and maybe forever. But, national security requires that we keep production capacity strong in the country. It’s national suicide to offshore these skills.

      Of course domestic producers like that, because it forces business their way. However, if we do this right, we will gradually bring prices much closer to parity with world markets, and we will grow our domestic industry at the same time.

      That would have been honest. Tariffs are a tax. WE pay the tax. No getting around that.

      • He was honest. His cabinet picks have been saying this very thing.

        And with household incomes rising, any increase in such taxes is offset. And lets not forget that the QUALITY of the products will increase, so that they will last longer. To me, it’s not that big of a deal.

          The quality thing is a biggie. No more buying a washer, only to have it break down two years later. I had a Whirlpool set, hideous avocado green, that lasted me 19 years, with only a belt replacement. Best set I ever had. Yay Whirlpool.

            The uglier the color (or obnoxious the sound), the longer they last. I think the manufacturers abandoned avacado green just so they could sell more units (as the avo ones were refusing to break down)…

            A corollary to that is the cheaper the dish, glass, or watch, the longer they last…
            Fine china or crystal (or a fancy watch) – just leave them in a hutch or their box…

Actually thought that was not a good Tucker for some reason. Yep, Trump is MAGA and those who want “free trade” need to stop and recognize that NOTHING IS FREE because someone has to be paying somewhere and we ain’t gonna do it any more. Yep, foreign countries now doing business here as cheaper and a better investment and we will get better quality with our standards as well. MONEY DOES TALK!

    POTUS just needs to go on tv, Ross Perot style, and explain with graphics that China has 1.5 billion people that they have to keep employed. Due to their economic model, the workers are paid artificially low wages. One of the ways they do this is by producing massive amounts of steel and aluminum, and then dump it at cheap prices on the world market which drives down prices. We can’t allow our own economy to suffer, just because they have 1.5 billion indentured servants to feed. It’s not fair and someone has to stand up to it. China style communism works as long as the other countries play along and suck up chinese production at the expense of their own economic growth.

      It’s not just that. China closes off their market to our goods and services. They steal our intellectual property to develop their domestic industries.

    Yep, caught a little of ole Yeller’s schtick tonight. I can’t believe I once thought he was indispensable to the right’s quest to win back the Whitehouse, the Senate, and the House.

    Stopped listening to him in early 2016 when he continually bad-mouthed Trump. He finally endorsed Trump right before the election, but don’t think his ratings ever fully recovered from his never-Trumper rants.

    Although he occasionally gives Trump kudos for this or that policy, ole Yeller’s an absolute loon on Tariffs, giving Trump no credit, refuses to acknowledge the uses of Tariffs in US history, and the blatant unfair trade rules the US has kowtowed to since NAFTA.

    Can’t wait for him to eat crow as the economy roars onward and upward, but not holding my breath.

    He remains a never-Trumper in sheep’s clothing.

    A nice job of dodging the real issues by Mr Navarro and a very poor job of interviewing by Mr Carlson.

    The real issue is this: are these tariffs, retaliatory or structural? If they are in response to other countries unfair trade policies and will last only until those countries change their rules, well and good. This is in line with the need to make international trade policies fair as well as free.

    But if the tariffs are structural, designed to protect US aluminium and steel manufacturers for the long term, then there are some real questions that must be asked. Notice that these execs first made their pitch for the cuts last April. Now they have just received a 14% profit increase in the new corporate tax cuts. Do they really need an additional 25% profits in the tax increase, and if so why? Are they so inefficient compared manufacturers to other countries? Wil the tariff help the companies time to reinvest and increase their efficiencies or will it shelter their inefficiencies? What will a 25% cost uptick in steel do to the cost of cars, buildings and the Consumer Price Index? 5% or higher inflation anyone? And if other countries are presently competing using relatively fair trade policies on these products, how will they retaliate?

      I agree with you on the use of the tariffs to essentially balance the “fair trade” playing field. It is a sad joke to listen to politicians and business people who talk about being “free market” capitalists in their opposition to the tariffs. It seems it is only bad when the US moves to even the playing field for their workers and critical industries.

      On the other front about the size of the tariffs, that is a completely different and much more difficult pill to swallow. My fear is that many of our critical metal working industries have been allowed to atrophy for so long that the actual depth of the capital investment needed to technologically bring them up to a competitive level will be high if not found to be already prohibitive. Time will tell.

      I watched this happen to the zinc and steel industries in PA, where I grew-up. They faced the double threat of heavily foreign government subsidized competition and Unions that evolved into organizations with absolutely no interest in the long term survival of their jobs.

      WORSE it is a security matter.
      “Oct 1, 2010 – An Indiana plant that once supplied 80 percent of US smart-bomb magnets now provides dog care. China cornered the market in processing the metals.

      In 1950 – 30% of the US labor force worked in manufacturing. The last I checked, in 2010 IT WAS LESS THAN 9%.
