Keynes and Bown explain Trump’s latest trade actions in his national security cases on steel, aluminum and automobiles. They speak with Kristin Dziczek (Center for Automotive Research) about perceived threats to R&D of “American-owned” carmakers, as well as the political and economic implications of Trump negotiating voluntary export restraints on autos from the EU and Japan.
