President Trump has authorized his planned tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.  

(And a note: Stateside aired this conversation just before President Trump adopted the tariffs.)

Listen above to learn about the financial impact the tariff has on producers, and why Stevenson says it's important to offer customers canned beer.
