      Steel and aluminum tariffs

      This.

      https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/01/politics/steel-aluminum-trade-trump-chaos/index.html

      Trump said the US will impose a 25% tariff on steel imports and 10% tariff on aluminum to shore up the struggling industries, capping a fierce, months-long internal debate that divided some of the President's top advisers. The move is likely to invite retaliatory measures from foreign countries, raising the specter of a trade war between the US and several other steel-producing countries.

      Welcome to a 25% increase on the cost of a new automobile.  I guess he didn't think of that.

      I wonder how many people have given this any thought.... I mean serious thought.

      Some people debate this was a huge part of the cause of the Great Depression.

      No extra costs if they use American steel and aluminum. And it ain't like a lot off steel goes into cars these days.

      Export or die.  The rest of the world will react with targeted tariffs and boycotts....that will hurt right away and cause a lot of local pain.  For instance, if Canada boycotted or increased tariff on US wine, that would wipe out at a minimum 15 per cent of California's wine business.  That will hurt badly in Norcal.  The Europeans are threatening Harley Davidson and Levis....that will hurt.  Farm produce from Mexico if tariffed will make it way more expensive for you to feed your families.  And if the rest of the world stops buying your steel, and airplanes, it could devastate Cleveland and Seattle. This is just the tip of the iceberg.  New trade routes will develop.  New partners will emerge.  All because one ersatz fake president has a temper tantrum because is failing administration is on the ropes.   Wait for Mueller's report and this shit will be small potatoes.

      The move is to make US metal product more attractive in our own country and to help revive the industry shackled to death by liberal government regulations. Sure it will mean less importing. America first. Chile makes some good grapes. :)  I'm sure they could use the business.

      But wine isn't your business. You have zero political influence apart from one vote. You make no noise.  However, the auto manufacturers, the US wine industry and US aerospace businesses do.  So do the thousands of non subsidized employees that work for them.  It is the dumbest thing an American president has done in a hundred years.

      Americans will still buy the same amount of domestic made cars. All the US manufacturers own and produce cars in other countries as well. Places where they are free to produce using imported steel and aluminum. The other six world wide divisions of General Motors will be completely unaffected as will Ford and Chrysler international operations. 

       

      Your severely over dramatizing this.

      If you look at other countries, Europe for example, they buy their own most of the time.  Germans drive MB and Volks.  Italians drive FIATs.  The French drive Citroens, Peugeots, and Renaults.  I don't think that will change.
