RUSH: Trump has announced this afternoon that they’re gonna impose tariffs on steel and aluminum, which is the fulfillment of a campaign promise. What are you shaking your head at in there?
But this was a campaign promise. What I find interesting, he darts to a campaign promise right after the controversy over apparently wanting to go along with Democrats on their gun control proposals.
RUSH: The Dow Jones Industrial Average is down about 500 points on the announcement that Trump is going to impose tariffs. Now, they haven’t been imposed yet. That’s gonna happen next week. It’s just the talk of the imp… They’re taxes. This is foreign exporters and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is now down by (let’s see) 485. So it’s in the 500 ballpark.
