No Surprise, That

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn opposes tariffs on Canadian newsprint that have driven up printing costs and forced cutbacks at newspapers around the nation.

“Newspapers are beleaguered already, and I don’t think we need to make that any harder than it already is,” Cornyn said during an appearance at the National Rifle Association convention Friday in Dallas.
Trump's tariff on newsprint is aimed neither at the Canadian paper industry or the American paper industry. It is aimed squarely at newspapers.

Trump, like any half-pint authoritarian wannabee, hates a free press. That's why he's toying with yanking the press credentials of any publication that publishes articles that don't laud the Enlightened Reign of Commandante Bone-Spurs. So this tariff should not shock anyone.
