Trump to sign order on U.S. content thresholds for steel, iron: Navarro

Source: Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump will sign an order on Monday seeking to increase the domestic content threshold for American-made iron and steel in federal procurements, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said in an opinion piece on Fox News.

Navarro said Trump will strengthen his “Buy American” platform by further moving toward increasing “domestic content threshold for American-made iron and steel from 50 percent to 95 percent.”

1. Does that mean Putin's

Steel that comes in via Jersey will be branded made in the USA? Does that mean US Steel will maybe open those recently closed Furnace's?

Some where there has to be some truth,and it ain''t going to come from the Racist Accused Rapist in the White House.

3. Once it's run through furnace and rolling plant, Russian steel doesn't leave any fingerprints....

and forging the paper trail is nothing but a minor inconvenience for these mobsters.

7. You just know there are 'Empty' warehouses in new Jersey that are stacked to the rafters....

with slabs and billets of Russian steel just waiting for the price to spike.

It's a rigged game, I tell you.

8. As well as Rail Cars Loaded and parked on Dead Lines around the Country.

Daily Car demurage is only 6 bucks a day. Enbridge did this and are still doing it with their Pipe for the Keystone. You will find these loads parked on unused Coal Spurs in Montana and Southern Saskatchewan.

5. Within two years.

Believe there is a ton of Steel piled up in Yards all over the Nation. It is the high Ferrous and Virgin content that is in short supply.
