Trump’s US Steel plant openings claim is fake news

Claims by US President Donald Trump that US Steel has opened half a dozen new plants as a result of his steel tariffs is 'fake news', according to US Steel.

No such announcements have been made, according to a report in the Star Tribune, a US newspaper. In a report by Hope Yen, US Steel's spokeswoman said that operational changes are publicly announced and made available on the company's website – should they occur.
