As Election Day Approaches, AFT Calls on Both Presidential Candidates to Reject Tariffs in Their Final Argument to Voters

WASHINGTON, D.C., (October 29, 2020) — Today, Americans for Free Trade spokesperson Jonathan Gold released the following statement ahead of next week’s election.  
“In the last few days before the election, President Trump and Vice President Biden must commit to repealing the tariffs and ending the failed trade war in their final argument to voters. Key swing states like Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina are among the hardest hit by tariffs, and voters in these states need to see leadership on trade policy from both candidates. While tariffs have not been the predominant issue of this campaign, to many farmers, business owners, and manufacturers, it is the single greatest challenge they face every day. President Trump and Vice President Biden would be wise to make sure the American people know they will put American workers and consumers first and end the trade war.”
