Stories that Mattered From Last Week – Tariffs, Cyber Attacks, and Gun Legislation

Read about what really matters from the news last week. We provide you the least-biased news about current events so you can go about your day informed, not brainwashed.

What to focus on:

  • President Trump unexpectedly announced tariffs on steel (25%) and aluminum (10%) last week. This move resonated well with his base who is excited about the impact on blue-collar jobs and wages. However, it’s yet to be seen if retaliation will come from foreign powers that will adversely affect blue collar jobs in industries like agriculture. People are already throwing around the word “trade war”, but it’s yet to be seen if one will result from this. There are two possibilities that would avoid a trade war. On one hand, President Trump may simply be negotiating and chose these tariffs as an anchor. On the other hand, if the tariffs stay in place, it’s yet to be seen if foreign powers will retaliate.
