ARLINGTON, Va. – Following the Trump administration’s announcement that the U.S. will implement additional tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese products, AFP President Tim Phillips issued the following statement urging the elimination of tariffs and trade barriers:
“The continued escalation of this trade war is wreaking havoc on the wellbeing of American businesses and workers. In this time of economic growth, job creators should be planning for the future, not guarding themselves from uncertainty ahead. Each tit-for-tat tariff increase leaves another business owner poring over balance sheets, another farmer faced with crops he or she can’t sell, and another family wondering how to afford necessities like clothing or produce. This administration has done so much to spur economic growth, but those gains will be lost if the escalation of trade barriers continues.”
