Club for Growth President David McIntosh appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box on May 22 to discuss tariffs and trade negotiations with China.
McIntosh said tariffs are taxes, and “There’s a real cost to this type of negotiations and it is borne by the American people.”
But he added that President Trump is using the tariffs to bring China to the table for a sustentative agreement.
McIntosh said, “I think the President’s strategy is be tough with China, force them back to the table, let them know that he won’t accept a save face type agreement, it has to be a real agreement. My hope is they get to that sooner rather than later so that that ongoing cost to the American people doesn’t continue.”
