first_img SHARE After hosting what the White House initially called a “listening” session, President Donald Trump took American investors by surprise Thursday. Trump announced to the group attending the meeting that he will be imposing the long-rumored steel and aluminum tariffs next week. The president will impose a 25 percent tariff on steel imports and a 10 percent for aluminum. Trump told a meeting of steel and aluminum executives that he’ll sign the paperwork next week. “You’re going to have protection for the first time in a long time,” he said to the executives. He says steel and aluminum workers haven’t been represented in some time and moves like this will help rebuild the American industries.Before making the announcement, Trump praised his recent tariffs on solar panels and washing machines, saying they were a good example of how tariffs can lead to investment in different U.S. business sectors. Metal company stocks rose sharply after the midday announcement. At the same time, the announcement pushed the Canadian dollar sharply lower. While it did bounce back somewhat, the tariffs remind people on both sides of the border about lingering tensions as the countries continue to participate in NAFTA negotiations.U.S. Wheat Associates and the National Association of Wheat Growers were both very disappointed in the Trump Administration’s decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. A statement says they have repeatedly warned of the risks of retaliation and the precedent set by such a policy would have potentially serious consequences for agriculture. The groups say it’s disappointing that the voices of farmers and many other industries were ignored in favor of an industry that’s already among the most well-protected in the country.Brian Kuehl of the Farmers for Free Trade Organization says they are also deeply concerned that the move to impose tariffs will unintentionally hurt American agriculture. “These tariffs are very likely to accelerate a tit-for-tat approach on trade, putting U.S. agricultural exports in the crosshairs,” Kuehl says. “We’ve already seen China discussing tariffs on sorghum, while the EU and China have both indicated they will move forward with swift retaliation in the wake of these tariffs.” He adds that everyone agrees on the need to hold trading partners accountable but taking unilateral action like this will have unintended consequences. “The ag sector knows from experience that our ag exports are the first to be hit by retaliation,” he adds.

first_imgLinkedin + posts printWhile the exterior of TCU’s Greek housing has a cohesive style to match the rest of campus, each sorority was given the liberty to personalize its interior as it pleased with the help of alumni and other board members. TCU funded the majority of the project but allowed the chapters to purchase upgrades and personalize their houses with design elements.Many sororities incorporated their traditions and symbols into their designs; Kappa Kappa Gamma is clad in blue and blue, two lions guard Alpha Delta Pi’s entrance and Delta Gamma has an anchor rooted in their front yard.  The new houses don’t just have personal touches though, many sorority women living in the houses said the new open chapter rooms and kitchens have allowed bonding opportunities with sisters. This is something you don’t get to do in a regular dorm, sophomore Kappa Alpha Theta member, Hailey Paul said.“Theta’s study room has comfy chairs and couches that are inviting and make all of us want to sit in there to have a social gathering to be able to help each other with school, as well as catch up on life,” Paul said.The chapter room is furnished with tables that allow Theta members to eat together like a family with comfortable couches nearby for sometimes watching a movie after dinner, Paul said.Interior of Kappa Alpha Theta’s house.“Elizabeth White, the designer, was so cool and helped us make the chapter room super cute and welcoming,” Paul said. The chapter had a huge part in this project and is one of its biggest supporters, White said.Over at the Delta Gamma house, there is a similarly positive response.“Walking into the Delta Gamma house instantly feels like home,” Sophomore Delta Gamma member Rachael Reinhert said. “There is a loving sense within the walls. The light pink brings friendship, peace while the blue brings trust. We share this space between the light cream walls as friends and as family.”  Interior of Delta Gamma’s sorority house.Delta Gamma received help from alumni member Lisa Ford to design the beautiful house they have now, said Reinhert. Ford said she enjoyed designing the interior to match the traditions and customs of this special group of women.  TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Facebook ReddIt Never too young to make an impact Twitter Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Colleen Powell Study abroad adds Stellenbosch, South Africa to its list of destinations ReddIt Colleen Powellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colleen-powell/ Colleen Powellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colleen-powell/ Previous articlePrimary election shows surge in voters for Democratic candidatesNext articleHoroscope: March 7, 2018 Colleen Powell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Colleen Powellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colleen-powell/ Linkedin Twitter Colleen Powellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colleen-powell/ Fort Worth Music Festival World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Eco-Friendly hair salons look to encourage others to help the environmentlast_img
