Republican Nervous About New Tariffs


Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) told CNN that he is “nervous” regarding the new tariffs President Trump has imposed. However, he hopes that this works out in America’s benefit.

Kinzinger claims, “Well, we’re all worried. … They’re [Kinzinger’s constituents] willing to give him a little leverage to fight for this, but they’re also slightly nervous. I think where we see concern is not necessarily taking on China. There have been massively abusive trade practices, but it’s also saying we’ll take on Canada, Mexico, and the EU. That said, I hope the president’s successful. He has a lot of leverage to do this. I hope he can win. Because we have to fight back. But there’s no doubt a lot of my agricultural — my farmers are very nervous. And I’m nervous about it too.”
