    Can you think of an example of such, an easily won trade war? I can't.

      From the article I read (some business e-zine) US Steel began a major upgrade of its steel plants using nearly all their capital. I tried to find it again (it was on my Yahoo news feed below an article on Boeing's new contract to re-wing another 110 A-10s). The steel market proved softer than expected, and so income has not arrived in large enough numbers forcing them to lay off a number of workers. From this and other articles it appears to be a TLO and not an ILO.

        Without a high number of steel, auto or middle class jobs the country is at risk of becoming more violent , we will see more and more divorces , financial crisis and a society where greed and anti Americanism take hold. Even tucker Carlson on fox points out the downfall of the Us middle class. Folks think about it, this is an issue the media does not always cover that is the downfall of the American middle class and with that a higher and higher divorce rate along with so many kids born it of wedlock and born into poverty. People here in there 60s and 70s grew up in a much better country compared to young men and women that are growing up today. The hope is we can have a pro American leader to take hold of our country
        We don't need a "pro-American leader" - we already have one. What we need is a pro-American Congress that doesn't block every attempt to fix problems while creating more problems of their pwn while robbing America blind.

          If selling America resources to the highest bidder is your idea of Pro American. How many problems has he fixed? How many has he caused?

          pro-American Congress that doesn't block every attempt to fix problems while creating more problem
          With Moscow Mitch blocking everything he doesn't like from getting to the floor Congress isn't going far

            We do? And who would that be?

            And Moscow Mitch in the Senate is blocking passed legislation from the House-he won't let it come up for a vote. He's the one stopping problems getting fixed.

              And, Democrat Senate leader Harry Reid did the exact same thing for years... Seems that's how Congress (doesn't) works now.

                Reid is no longer there. McConnell is and he is the problem in the Senate-that and the fact that the 'Republicans' fear Trump.

                  Doesn't change my comment that this is hardly some new development unique to the Republicans or Trump being in office. The point of that being is you make it sound like it is new and unique.

                    HMMMM....I believe the Tallow and hide conflict between Mercia and Wessex was resolved fast when both sides realised that the
                    Danes wee marching in from Yorkshire

                    Other then that, the garnet wheat dispute between British flour producers and Canada, which ended in 1936- 38 when Canada stopped being completely silly and the Garnet infused bread wheat stocks were quietly sold to prison food programs.....

                      so what you are saying is that the current incumbent is a failure,- or are you posting a logical paradox?

                        The actual facts of the story without the spin:
                        One year after announcing a $750 million revitalization of its northwest Indiana facilities, U.S. Steel is idling its tin mill in East Chicago and laying off about 150 workers due to “high levels of low-priced imported tin,” the company said Friday.

                        The tin mill will stop production by mid-November, with roughly half of its 297 employees expected to land at U.S. Steel’s other northwest Indiana facilities — Gary Works and the Midwest Plant in Portage, the company said.

                          It's worse than it ever was and that is because of Trump and the Republicans in the Senate who are afraid to cross him.

                            I was mainly talking about the Great Lakes Works, which produces steel, not tin.

                              Rather ironic, when municipalities are really eager for steel to shore up breakwaters and seawalls around the record high great Lakes
