WASHINGTON- U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s announcement of tariffs on steel and aluminum:

“I certainly agree with President Trump’s desire to protect American workers, but I do not believe that applying broad tariffs is the right means to that end. The economy is doing well as a result of the tax cuts and our efforts to cut regulatory red tape. We do not want to stop that growth by creating an all-out trade war, and there is considerable concern that far-reaching tariffs might escalate to that level. The President has suggested that his policy will be applied with discretion. I encourage him to implement it in a manner that does not result in a situation that will hurt American exporters.”
