Thanks for nothing, Trump!

Wow...1500 AR jobs to be lost due to Trump’s tariffs. I hope they’re all Trump supporters and, therefore, understand it’s their patriotic duty to find themselves unemployed. I suspect, however, many are just hardworking AR’s with mouths to feed and bills to pay. Another ‘win’ for economic populism.

That would not be good for Conway. Tokusen pays well and puts a lot into training their employees.

Translation...they want to be able to buy cheap steel cord from foreign companies rather than support an American steel producer. Those days are over, thanks to NAFTA etc, we have lost probably half of our large manufacturers that used to provide cradle to grave jobs. Thank God we finally have someone in the White House that understands business, the flow of commerce, and how to actually negotiate a fair and realistic deal.
