WASHINGTON, D.C., (October 22, 2020) — Today, Americans for Free Trade spokesperson Jonathan Gold released the following statement ahead of tonight’s final Presidential debate.
“As President Trump and Vice President Biden make their final pitch to voters during tonight’s debate, it is critical that both candidates use their time on the national stage to commit to repealing tariffs and ending the trade war. It is long overdue for the tariffs to be lifted, yet neither candidate has made a firm commitment to end the trade war if they’re elected in November. American farmers, businesses, and consumers continue to pay tens of billions of dollars in tariffs at the same time they struggle to stay afloat amid the economic crisis. Americans need relief now. We encourage both candidates to use tonight as an opportunity to show leadership and promise immediate relief to Americans.”
