Have President Trump’s Tariffs Failed US Steel Companies?

As noted in the previous part, US steel imports have risen sharply in the last two months despite President Trump imposing the Section 232 tariffs. Looking at product specific action, rebar imports more than doubled last month. Nucor (NUE) is investing in new rebar capacity. Earlier this year, Commercial Metals Company (CMC) acquired some of Gerdau’s (GGB) US rebar mills.
