Senator Steve Daines is backing President Trump on tariffs

“I support the President’s efforts to make better trade deals for the American worker,” said Daines. “I am relieved he has more narrowly tailored our trade sanctions, than originally proposed, however, I remain concerned that tariffs will increase costs on Montana working families, farmers and ranchers. Free, fair and smart trade is vital to protecting millions of good-paying jobs across our country.”

11 Trans-Pacific countries signed already signed a revised version of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement, which did not include the United States.

“As Trans-Pacific countries move forward with that agreement today, I continue to encourage President Trump to re-engage with these partners and work aggressively to make a deal that works for the American people,” said Daines. “I believe he can secure an agreement that is good for Montana and ensures that workers in America, not China, can sell more of their products in these important markets.”
