In the global market for steel, there is a significant overcapacity that is located in China, which has driven down the global price.

44. As Trump weighs tariff, US steelmakers enjoy rising profits -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration has chosen an odd time to offer special protection to the U.S. steel industry.

NEW DELHI (AP) — U.S. oil refineries that are unable to sell a dirty fuel waste product at home are exporting vast quantities of it to India instead.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has reopened his Twitter spigot now that his foreign trip is over, so brace yourself.

62. AP FACT CHECK: No, manufacturing and coal are not rebounding -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump wants to show that his economic vision of America — making products again, raising great buildings and mining coal — is already coming true, despite the lack of legislation powering that dream.

An interesting thing happened just a couple of hours before Gov. Bill Haslam unveiled his fuel-tax increase plan amid great fanfare at the State Capitol.

As the governor started explaining the proposed IMPROVE Act to reporters during a short media briefing, he apparently realized more people were poring over a handout than paying attention. They were trying to get a jump on writing stories while digesting the numbers combined with an array of tax breaks designed to make tax increases more palatable.

NEW YORK (AP) — In a solid year for stocks, graphics processor maker Nvidia stood far above its peers on the Standard & Poor's 500 index. The company's stock more than tripled for the year.

78. How a Trump win might affect Tennessee -

Radical change may be the cry of Donald Trump supporters, but questions loom large over a potential presidency for the Republican nominee.

SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — It's Tesla Motors' biggest bet yet: a massive, $5 billion factory in the Nevada desert that could nearly double the world's production of lithium-ion batteries.
