MSCI Responds To President Trump’s Call For Action

Last Tuesday, President Donald Trump gave his first address to a joint session of Congress. The Metals Service Center Institute (MSCI) issued a statement after the remarks. 

President and CEO M. Robert Weidner noted that, “regarding the Affordable Care Act, President Trump said ‘action is not a choice, it is a necessity.’” In his statement, Weidner said “that phrase shouldn’t apply only to health care—it must apply to all major challenges facing federal lawmakers.” 

In his remarks, video of which can be found here, President Trump discussed health care, trade, energy, tax, and regulatory policy. Weidner argued, “[President Trump] promised a ‘renewal of the American spirit’ and a resurgence in economic growth, and I believe that if he works with Congress to act on his agenda of infrastructure and energy investment, education and comprehensive tax reform, and stronger trade enforcement, we can achieve that.” American Metal Market featured Weidner’s statement in its report on the president’s address.
