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 following President Donald J. Trump’s announcement on steel tariffs:

“I join steelworkers across America in being encouraged by President Trump’s tariff announcement, which would level the playing field to prevent further deterioration of our domestic steel industry.

“A strong steel industry is critically important to this country and our national security. I am glad that President Trump and Secretary Ross share our concerns. We support the administration’s efforts to protect America’s domestic steel industry and await a final ruling that is both swift and strong.”


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