“Club for Growth was excited to learn of President Trump’s decision to delay plans to increase tariffs on Chinese goods imported to the United States,” stated Club for Growth President David McIntosh.
“Tariffs are taxes on Americans, and a trade war is beneficial to no one. We applaud President Trump’s successful effort to engage with China for a new trade agreement. The closer our nations can move to the goal of zero-zero tariffs, the better. We are encouraged by the progress President Trump is making with the Chinese and look forward to the day when we have achieved a world free of tariffs.”
