AFT Statement On Continued Inflation Concerns

WASHINGTON, D.C., (November 4, 2021) — Today, Americans for Free Trade spokesperson Jonathan Gold released the following statement calling on United States Trade Representative Katherine Tai to remove tariffs on imports from China amid continued concerns over inflation:
“As Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen acknowledged in a recent interview with Reuters, tariffs boost costs domestically and raise prices for U.S. businesses and consumers alike. As our nation continues to face concerns over rising prices and supply chain obstacles, it is time for Ambassador Tai and other members of the Biden administration to recognize that leaving the previous administration’s failed trade policies in place will only make the problem worse. For the sake of Americans everywhere, it is time to bring the trade war with China to an end.”
