Trump makes first visit to Illinois since becoming president today

Burritt also referenced the taconite that comes from Minnesota that makes the steel at Granite City.

Trump credited his 25 percent tariff on imported steel for the factory's expansion.

"To see an old big monster plant like this opening, that is an honor", Trump said. China, the European Union, Canada and Mexico have responded with taxes on some USA goods.

"Safety remains a priority for U. S. Steel as we continue to investigate the incident", a U. S. Steel spokesperson said in a statement to KMOV. "Buy American, and hire American", he said. Now, he said, he was negotiating better terms.

Trump was meeting later Thursday with steelworkers in Granite City, Illinois, where U.S. Steel recently announced it was firing up a furnace at Granite City Works that had been idled for more than two years.

"We just opened up Europe for you farmers". "I don't think that's going to happen".

Business leaders and Republicans in Congress have said the tariffs could hurt companies reliant on steel and aluminium raw materials in their manufacturing and raise prices.

Tariffs threaten more than $3.8 billion in IL exports, according to the US Chamber of Commerce, and major companies including Caterpillar and Boeing already have been hurt.

"This is a real vindication that the president's trade policy is starting to work", Ross said of Wednesday's European Union deal. And also jobs. And also, we're recreating a giant industry.

Granite City Works is now near its 2015 employment level of 2,100, with a second blast furnace to be operating by this fall.

"Somebody actually predicted today 5.3 [percent growth]" he said during a rally at a steel plant here.

President Donald Trump speaks on trade at Granite City Works Steel Coil Warehouse, Thursday, July 26, 2018, Granite City, Ill.

But that's not the first time Trump has promoted false portrayals of the results.

It's not traditional for presidents to comment on economic growth figures before they are released, but President Trump isn't exactly a stickler for tradition.
