Trump’s Tariffs Opposed By Governor, Majority Of Congressional Delegation

President Donald Trump on Thursday (March 8) pulled the trigger on tariffs for steel and aluminum imports, with exceptions made for Canada and Mexico. The move was praised by the steel industry, but most members of Arkansas’ Congressional delegation said “unintended consequences” could result in more economic harm than good.

The President’s order places a 25% tariff on steel imports and a 10% tariff on aluminum imports, and created exemptions for imports from Canada and Mexico during the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

President Trump said during the tariff announcement he would be open to modifying or ending tariffs as conditions change.   MORE
