Trade Tariffs

In cooperation with the National Retail Federation, Washington Retail has urged President Trump and Congress to oppose increasing trade tariffs upon nations with whom we trade.

This risks alienating our trading partners to do businesses with nations other than the United States. This hurts U.S. businesses through lost sales and threatens jobs and the health of the U.S. economy. It also tempts affected nations to increase tariffs on U.S. exports, further threatening U.S. jobs and the health of the nation’s economy.
