US steel executives appeal directly to Trump for import restrictions

Senior executives from 25 U.S. steel and steel-related companies sent a letter to Trump saying the industry was suffering the consequences of government inaction.

But that this could change with his “bold leadership” and “America First” vision.

“The need for action is urgent. Since the 232 investigation was announced in April, imports have continued to surge,” the executives said in the letter.
