I sure hope you folks are ready for a big letdown. Trump won't win a tariff war. China and Mexico still make it cheaper.

The Mill was shut down to negotiate the price of steel up and the price of raw materials down. It had nothing to do with Trump. Besides, capitulation on steel and aluminum tariffs is STILL going on. Why do you think only one blast furnace is being put back on line. Just a toe in the water. Trump Chumps Unite!

Yeah, it had nothing to do with Trump. Obama must have done it before he left office and just forgot to tell everybody. Let's give him and hubby Michael all the credit so guys like you can keep worshiping him. Only one blast furnace is going on line you twit because it's a major operation to bring it up and takes money and time. You'll soon see the other one up. Trump rules and guys like Rain are being left behind. See you in hell tool.

It so happens, I do know that it is much cheaper to bring back both furnaces simultaneously. Toe in the water, nothing more than that. Propaganda tool for Trumpty Dumpty, that's all. Trump Chumps Unite!

Rain you sound like a bitter little man. Are you the new BLM? We haven't heard much from the old one since it got cold. I guess rioters and thugs don't come out from under the ground when it's cold outside.

US Steel shut down some plants that make suitable steel for tubing and pipe. Trouble is that Granite City Works also made automotive steel. They missed out on most of the automotive boom. A huge mistake. Why do you think they kicked Mario to the curb? China will still eat their lunch by increasing government subsidies on their steel. Trump waited too long to announce tariffs. He figured his folly wouldn't be seen till after midterm elections. The whole world is against him. He's screwed. Trump Chumps Unite!

China provides less than 2% of the steel in the US. Look it up. They are number 11 on the list of countries we important from. Over 2/3 of our impirted steel comes from Canada, Mexico, and South Korea.

Only bringing back the U.S. economy from the worse meltdown since the great depression. Caused by Trump and his ilk by selling real estate with inflated prices to people who couldn't afford it because, credit was easy to get because of Cheney-Bush deregulation. Got it? Trump Chumps Unite!

Cheney-Bush deregulation? Graham-Leech-Bliley was signed by Clinton. He basically allowed the neocons in Congress to have free reign to do whatever they wanted.

Bullshit! Clinton drove the neocons into hiding until Cheney took over. Hell, Gingrich didn't even come out of the cracks until the Trump shitshow. Trump Chumps Unite!

Keep preaching that "bringing back the economy". Tell that to the guys at the mill who were laid off twice during the reign of you boy. Increasing people on food stamp roles isn't a positive sonny boy. You should shut your mouth before somebody shuts it for you.

You're completely and totally wrong. Clinton worked with the Neocons in Congress and signed everything they sent him. Are you denying that the deregulation you're talking about was due to the Graham-Leech-Bliley Act or that Clinton signed it? Because you can easily prove to yourself that it happened with a simple Google search. There's no reason to remain willfully ignorant. You're on the internet. You have a whole worlds worth of knowledge at your finger tips.

Actually, it was the GRAMM-leech- Bliley Act. Sometimes Presidents sign bills because they don't want to be overridden on a veto. Clinton signed this one on his way out. Credit got loosened because it allowed big banks to loan depositors money to mortgage brokers. Mortgage brokers skirted normal disclosure rules to sell overpriced homes to people who couldn't afford them. Because of this, we had the biggest real estate boom since WWII. That, in turn set us up for the biggest housing crisis EVER. I guess Slick Willy should have known all that, huh? Trump Chumps Unite!
