Walorski urges long-term solution to White House tariffs on China

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Representative Jackie Walorski is responding to a proposed 10% tariff on $200 billion worth of goods from China.

It's expected to go into effect later this month.

That percentage is expected to rise to 25% before the end of the year.

These tariffs are in addition to penalties the White House imposed on $50 billion dollars’ worth of other Chinese products.

Walorski issued a statement Tuesday morning that said in part: “We need to hold china accountable for its unfair trade practices, but I am increasingly concerned about the harmful impact tariffs are having on Hoosier farmers and manufacturers. It's time for President Trump and President Xi to meet face-to-face and find a long-term solution that ensures American farmers, businesses, and workers are treated fairly."
