Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Representative Will Hurd released the following statement in response to the President’s announcement to impose new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports:

“China is using predatory practices that are hurting the U.S. economy. However, imposing high tariffs on imported commodities is going to cause an unnecessary trade war that will result in higher prices for middle class Americans on everything from the food we put on our tables to fuel we put in our cars. I’m glad to see our neighbors Mexico and Canada exempt but we should focus on solving the real problem rather than using an 18th century tool that has repeatedly failed in the past.”
