Ball State University Economist Mike Hicks tells Indy Politics that the President’s call for increased tariffs on steel and aluminum are most likely to have the biggest negative impact on his own supporters.

Hicks says those tariffs will only increase prices for American consumers and hurt U.S. exports as other nations engage in retaliation.
