Political Scientist Paul Musgrave: "President Following Promise to Put America First"

Paul Musgrave, political science, is quoted in a news article examining the new tariffs on steel and aluminum put in place by the Trump administration that went into effect May 31. “The president seems to be following through on his promises of putting America first, in a weird and harmful way,” he says. “Since the campaign, he has made clear that he views allies as takers and wants to renegotiate the post-World War II liberal trading order to put the screws on them. It’s a callous, extortionate view.” (Vox, 5/31/18; Washington Post, 6/1/18)
