Want to know who is winning and losing in President Trump’s trade war? So do we.
At Taxpayers for Common Sense, we’ve been following the events of the trade war very closely, and have had several observations right off the bat – namely, it wasn’t hard to foresee that taxpayers were going to pick up the tab to compensate businesses getting caught in the crossfire of tit-for-tat tariffs. Or that although the fallout started with agribusinesses, the damage – like tariffs – was going to spread to other industries as Washington began to try and replace trade with hush money aid.
So what tariffs are in play? What damages are American businesses facing? What’s the dollar value of business lost? What’s the taxpayer on the hook for? Find out all that, and more, in our rolling analysis of the Trump Trade and Tariff Tiff.
