Arlington, VA – Today, in response to the list recently released by the United States Trade Representative’s office containing 25 percent tariffs on $16 billion in Chinese goods set to take effect August 23, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce responded with a 25% tariff on an additional $16 billion of U.S. goods.
Americans for Prosperity Chief Government Affairs Officer Brent Gardner had this to say:
“The misguided protectionist policies driving this trade war harm American businesses, consumers, and workers. The administration may be aiming for China, but they’re hitting TV makers in South Carolina, paper mills in Arkansas, and farmers in the Midwest. The longer this goes, the more pain Americans feel all across the country. We continue to urge the administration to drop this needless trade war – there are plenty of ways to negotiate to zero tariffs without punishing hardworking American families and businesses in the process.”
