Dold Trump defeated the Steel War.
In its decision Monday, the Supreme Court handed the Trump administration a victory, opposed to the effort to challenge tariffs on steel imports.
The court was on the side of the Trump administration, which imposed tariffs last year.
Recently, the International Trade Court has further contacted the Trump administration with regard to tariffs in such a decision.
The Supreme Court on Monday closed a petition for a court complaint confirming President Trump’s right to impose steel tariffs within national security.
The American Institute of International Steel, along with two member companies, has asked the Supreme Court to drop them against tariffs by skipping one step in the appeal process.
But the judges, in a non-signed order, said they would not hear the challenge during their next term.
The International Trade Court has confirmed Trump’s ability to impose tariffs in a previous ruling, referring to a previous ruling by the Supreme Court.
The Steel Group challenged the use of Article 232 of the 1962 Extension of Trade Act to impose tariffs. The president cites national security as a reason to apply tariffs under this law.
The Institute claims that the use of Art. 232 is unconstitutional, claiming that this is an “improper delegation” to Congress.
Trump has announced a 25 percent steel tariff and a 10 percent tariff for aluminum imports last year, but has recently made deals with Mexico and Canada to raise taxes for these countries. Tariffs remain valid for other major US trading partners as members of the European Union and Japan.
Ultimately, this is done for America’s economy and Don Duld Trump has made another victory.
