President Trump suggested earlier in the week that he was looking to impose 25% tariffs on imported steel and 10% tariffs on imported aluminum. It's beyond stupid and anybody who defends it on the basis of principle or economics is ignorant or lying.  Over the last 3 trading days, US stocks have lost well over $1 TRILLION in value. 

If he does this the way he's talking about, which is yet to be seen, he will crush the American consumer and kill far far more jobs than he creates while raising prices on so many things.
