Americans For Free Trade Statement Ahead of Vice Presidential Debate

WASHINGTON, D.C., (October 7, 2020) — Today, Americans for Free Trade spokesperson Jonathan Gold released the following statement ahead of tonight’s Vice Presidential Debate at the University of Utah. 

“Never in recent history have the stakes been higher for a Vice Presidential debate, and millions of Americans will be tuning in tonight to hear directly from Vice President Pence and Senator Harris about their vision for our country. As the economy and American businesses continue to struggle, both candidates would be wise to use this opportunity to speak out against tariffs, and the billions of dollars in taxes that American companies, farmers, and consumers have paid as a result of the President’s failed trade war with China. We should use every tool available to help lift our nation out of this economic crisis, and we urge Vice President Pence and Senator Harris to use their time on the national stage to show leadership on this issue and call for tariffs to be lifted.”
