Brown: Tariffs Are a Temporary Trade Tool, Not a Weapon for Policies President Doesn’t Like

CLEVELAND, OH – Today, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) released the following statement after President Trump abandoned his plans to impose a five percent tariff on all goods coming from Mexico. 

“Tariffs are a temporary tool we use against trade cheats, not a weapon against our allies for any policy the President doesn’t like. President Trump’s proposed tariffs would not fix our broken immigration system. ”
