Farmers for Free Trade React to White House's Announcements on Steel and Aluminum TariffsThu, 08 Mar 2018 16:54:33 CST
The following statement from the Farmers for Free Trade coalition, is in response to President Donald Trump's plan to implement retaliatory tariffs on steel and aluminum exports to foriegn markets.
“We expect that these tariffs will cause retaliation that will come out of the pockets of American farmers. History shows that these types of tariff fights escalate with our trading partners and result in farmers paying the price in the form of higher tariffs on the products we export. We’ll also see the price of ag equipment and inputs increase. While we need tough trade enforcement, we need to be smart about avoiding global trade fights that hurt American agriculture.
“In the weeks and months ahead, Farmers for Free Trade will be leading the fight to show the harmful impacts of these tariffs for our farmers and rural communities.”
