Trump to sign EO to purchase more iron and steel on federal level

The order directs agency heads to “encourage recipients of new federal financial assistance awards to use, to the greatest extent practical, iron, steel, aluminum, cement and other manufacturing products produced in the United States,” White House trade adviser Peter Navarro told reporters on a conference call.

Navarro said the measure will “reinforce this administration's ‘Buy American’ preferences” by “providing strong presidential guidance.” But it does not include enforcement mechanisms or specific purchasing targets.
