South Korean concessions proves Trump steel tariffs are already working

March 27, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising the Trump administration for already achieving major concessions from South Korea on the steel and aluminum tariffs:

“Professional naysayers and worry warts claimed doom was upon us when President Trump announced his steel and aluminum tariffs. They were wrong. South Korea’s announcement that they will end dumping steel into the U.S., and double U.S. automobile quotas into their country in exchange for an exemption from the increased steel tariffs is a clear-cut victory for the Trump trade agenda. Not surprising to anyone outside of academia, the obvious outcome of Trump’s steel tariff announcement was that countries would come to America wanting to make a deal, transforming the landscape towards more international trade on a reciprocal basis, evening out the playing field. Hopefully this will result in a reevaluation by those whose knee-jerk reactions always get it wrong.

“The Trump trade agenda is wildly popular across party lines, particularly with blue collar voters. That’s why Trump won in 2016. It is time for Republicans in Congress to catch up with the President on this important economic policy that puts America first.”
