Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs come with consequences…for Democrats and Never Trumpers. US Steel has announced that it will invest $1.2 billion into the Mon Valley’s Edgar Thomson Plant in Braddock, Pa.
The cutting-edge endless casting and rolling technology combines thin slab casting and hot rolled band production into one continuous process and will make Mon Valley Works the first facility of this type in the United States, and one of only a handful in the world.
“This is a truly transformational investment for U. S. Steel. We are combining our integrated steelmaking process with industry-leading endless casting and rolling to reinvest in steelmaking and secure the future for a new generation of steelworkers in Western Pennsylvania and the Mon Valley,” said David B. Burritt, President and Chief Executive Officer of U. S. Steel.
This will create that three letter word Joe Biden is famous for, Jobs. Not that Joe ever created any that weren’t buried somewhere down deep in the Swamp of government.
Congrats to @U_S_Steel for investing $1+ BILLION in America's most INNOVATIVE steel mill. 232 Tariffs make Pennsylvania and USA more prosperous/secure by bringing Steel and Aluminum industries BACK. Tariffs are working. Pittsburgh is again The Steel City. USA Economy is BOOMING! https://t.co/XPXjxli6uc
