Stop Donald Trump from Imposing Harmful Steel Tariff

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Prevent detrimental steel and aluminum tariff from weakening our international trade.

Donald Trump recently announced his plan to create a tariff of metals being imported into the US, such as aluminum and steel. There would be a 25% tariff on imported steels and a 10% tariff on imported aluminium. Unlike tariffs in the past, however, these tariffs are not designed to protect domestic metal industries; the president is pulling out a Cold War-era law about national security concerns as his rationale for the tariff.

Using the rationale of national security as a way to raise taxes and tariffs is a textbook scare tactic in the theater of war. Global stocks are now suffering, and major distributors in Asia are upset over the newly imposed tariff. Within 24 hours of the announcement, our foreign relations with several countries became more strained than they already were.


Dear President Trump,

Using global trade as a bargaining chip in global security measures is unforgivable, especially in an already tense political climate. Imposing superfluous tariffs on an industry already struggling with trade costs is a surefire way to agitate the global economy.

People’s jobs and lives are at stake all over the world because you want to impose a tariff that is deemed unnecessary by major economists. Stop using our global trade as a way to boast your power. Don’t impose any new, unnecessary tariff on the metal industry, or any industry worldwide.
