Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Trump’s tariffs allow us to invest $100 million and hire hundreds: Century Aluminum CEO, Says CNBC.

·        Trump’s new tariffs won’t wind up hitting consumers’ wallets, but they will bring jobs back, Century Aluminum CEO Michael Bless says.

·        Trump says the U.S. will impose a 25 percent tariff for steel and a 10 percent tariff for aluminum as early as next week.

·        Bless says the decision will allow his company to bring back 150,000 tons of production in its Kentucky plant.


From the White House Press Room to the Daily Business News…

President Donald Trump’s new steel and aluminum tariffs won’t wind up hitting consumers’ wallets but they will benefit “devastated” communities by bringing jobs back, Century Aluminum CEO Michael Bless told CNBC on Thursday.

The big picture: America’s resurgent economy 
Inside the Beltway, people often forget that what matters most to ordinary Americans is results. And recent news showing surging small-business and consumer confidence, near record low unemployment claims, and expectations of continued economic momentum is good news for U.S. workers and their families.

A few headlines paint the picture:

  • US Consumer Confidence Rises to Highest Level Since 2000 (The Associated Press)
  • Record Number of U.S. Small-Business Owners Say It’s a Good Time to Expand (Bloomberg)
  • U.S. Jobless Claims near 45-Year Low as Economic Outlook Brightens (Reuters)
  • Fed Thinks the Economy Has Momentum, Thanks Partly to Tax Cuts, Global Growth (Washington Examiner)

After 8 years of a presidential administration not taking economic growth seriously enough, President Trump has committed to an agenda that puts U.S. workers and businesses first.
