Tariffs Just the First Step Toward Fairer Trade with China

Tags Trade

The Trump administration on Friday announced a 25 percent tariff on $50 billion worth of imported goods from China.

Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) President Scott Paul said:

"For too long, American businesses and workers have suffered devastating losses due to China's unchecked cheating. These targeted tariffs are the right thing to do for our workers, our economy, and our future.

"While we support the administration's action today, there is still much left to be done. Restricting Chinese investment, pursuing multilateral trade cases against Beijing, and defending our farmers and workers who may be unfairly targeted by Chinese retaliation must also be priorities."
