Freedom Partners Statement: Tariffs Will Hurt American Manufacturers

Post by Freedom Partners

Arlington, VA – Freedom Partners executive vice president Nathan Nascimento responded today to a proposal by the Trump administration to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum:

“The problem with any kind of tariff or tax hike on imports is that it doesn’t make America more competitive or punish high-tax countries, it only hurts American consumers and businesses by driving up manufacturing costs and, ultimately, costing jobs. Tax reform just made America a top destination in the world for investment. We shouldn’t now implement policies that undermine our economy.”
