Trade wars generate no medals, monuments or military parades. They fabricate a lot of steel structures.
Trump appeared to undermine the US national security argument on Monday by tweeting that the tariffs would "come off" Mexico and Canada if they agreed a "fair" new deal in talks on the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
Economists see it rather differently.
"That makes China the more vulnerable partner in this", said Kuijs.
They are also coming after your beer.
Wall Street clearly agrees.
Republicans have raised concern about the United States president's plan to impose tariffs on metals, with the party's top lawmaker calling for it to be scrapped.
Major U.S. trade partners, including both Canada and Mexico, hit back at Trump and threatened retaliatory measures last week. Sanders added, "the President has been committed and talked about this for many years, particularly on the campaign trail, and the people came out loud and clear and supported this president, therefore supporting the policies he campaigned on". But globally, war drums are beating again. How will President Trump respond if they do retaliate?
How has the European Union responded to the tariff threat? That's why, for those who recognize that postwar trade policy has been enormously beneficial for the American and world economy, Trump's promised steel tariffs are much more ominous than their predecessors.
Trump's pronouncement Thursday that he would impose tariffs of 25 percent and 10 percent, respectively, on imported steel and aluminum, roiled markets and rankled allies.

Kashkari said a wholesale withdrawal would be devastating for the USA economy, adding that if the chains of production running between Canada, Mexico and the US were torn up it would be "enormously disruptive". Gains in US steel producers were partially offset by losses in shares of foreign producers, who are likely to be negatively affected by the tariffs.
Or consider the "Rubber Chicken" dispute of 2009. Earlier, China launched a probe into USA sorghum imports as a tit-for-tat action against the United States slapping higher taxes on imports of Chinese solar panels and washers. Canadians are appealing to the US once again for the exemption.
Trump's determination to push ahead with a 25 percent tariff on steel imports and a 10 percent duty on aluminum has prompted threats of retaliation from the European Union, Canada, China and Brazil among others.
The administration "stretches the definition of a national security threat to the breaking point", says Alden at the Council on Foreign Relations.
The president also left his plans unclear, tweeting later in the day: "To protect our Country we must protect American Steel!"
"Gary was here yesterday afternoon, I talked to him in my office several times, so I don't have any reason to think otherwise", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters.
"If you raise steel tariffs, are the steel jobs in the USA going to more than make up for the economic effect [on] everybody who is a steel consumer?" He said, "If they want to do something, we'll just tax their cars that they send in here like water".
Congressional leaders also would not rule out potential action in the future if Trump pursues the planned tariffs, a House Republican source said, although the source did not specify what action lawmakers were considering. And it's only the United States' 11th-biggest steel importer. Our steel industry is in bad shape. Canada, a steadfast ally.
Michigan, home of large steel-consuming automakers and suppliers, lost directly 9,829 jobs because of the tariffs, the report said.
And a White House account of Sunday's phone call made no mention of Mrs May's expression of concern, stating only that they discussed "President Trump's efforts to ensure fair and reciprocal trade".
