You WON’T Believe Which Administration Supports Trump’s Tariffs

The Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal brought by USP Holdings, which claimed the Trump administration acted improperly when it enacted steel tariffs. The Biden administration has left the tariffs intact for the most part and argued against USP Holdings and other steel importers who said they were damaged by the tariffs.

The Epoch Times reported that Scott Paul, president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing, stated that the Biden administration understands that simply lifting steel tariffs without any solution in place could result in layoffs and plant closures in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and other states, where the impact would be felt both economically and politically.

Trump enacted the tariffs citing Section 232 of the Trade Act of 1962, which permits the president to impose restrictions on the importation of goods deemed essential to national security. The Supreme Court turned away the petition in USP Holdings Inc. v. United States, and no justices dissented from the order.
