CLEVELAND, OH – Todd Leebow, President and CEO of Majestic Steel USA – a Cleveland, Ohio-based steel service center and master distributor of steel – released the following statement regarding President Donald J. Trump’s decision to extend tariff exemptions:

“Though there are no simple solutions given the gravity of the current situation, American steel is in need of certainty from our government. We’re hopeful this extension moves us toward the most productive path for our domestic steel industry: the tariffs President Trump announced earlier this year and a quota system to limit the amount of imports flooding our country.”


Leebow, a leading advocate for the domestic steel industry, has written recent columns on Section 232, China’s war against American steel, the current state of the American steel industry, and the opportunity for change under President Trump.
