The Washington Times cites Senior Fellow Ryan Young on tariffs.
A trade specialist for the Competitive Enterprise Institute said new tariffs won’t help U.S. farmers or manufacturers.
“Trump should instead remove the tariffs that sparked the trade war and shrank farmers’ export markets in the first place,” said CEI senior fellow Ryan Young. “Today’s new tariffs will have little effect on agriculture but will harm other industries and consumers. More than three-quarters of steel goes to construction and automobiles, for example.”
