100-Plus GOP House Members Ask Trump for Reversal on Tariffs

Wednesday, 07 March 2018 05:34 PM

More than 100 House Republicans are asking President Donald Trump to reconsider the idea of broad tariffs on steel and aluminum imports — in order to avoid unintended consequences to the U.S. economy.

The lawmakers say in a letter to the president that tariffs are taxes that make U.S. businesses less competitive and consumers poorer.

They say any tariffs should be targeted to minimize negative consequences. For example, there should be a process that allows companies to obtain duty-free access to imports unavailable from U.S. sources.

The lawmakers also say the effects of the tariffs should be reconsidered soon to determine if a different approach would better serve the U.S.

The lawmakers say they're eager to work with Trump on a more targeted approach and support his resolve to deal with "China's unfair practices."
