But Trump's recent announcement that he plans to slap across-the-board tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, coming on top of tariffs announced in January on Chinese solar panels and South Korean washing machines, have dashed hopes of presidential moderation. The other is Lawrence Kudlow, an economic analyst at CNBC who has criticized those same tariffs. "He may be a globalist, but I still like him".
"The American aluminum and steel industry has been ravaged by aggressive foreign trade practices", Trump declared at a White House ceremony, surrounded by steel and aluminum workers holding white hard hats.

Critics say Trump has undercut his own justification for the tariffs by linking them to NAFTA.
His staff hollowing out and his agenda languishing, President Donald Trump is increasingly flying solo.

So far, Trump's presidency has been good for Goldman and other major banks. The European Union and other allies are targeting items that include orange juice from Florida, motorcycles from Wisconsin, and tobacco from North Carolina, all of which are politically important states.
