Trade Works. Tariffs Don't.

Tariffs threaten to derail our nation’s recent economic resurgence.

American businesses and consumers are bearing the brunt of the global trade war.

By now, it’s plain to see that tariffs are inflicting harm on the American economy and will continue to do so unless the administration changes course.

The U.S. needs free and fair trade, but imposing tariffs to get there is the wrong approach.

Use the map below to learn about the states and businesses being harmed by the ongoing trade war.

Why does this matter?

jobs are supported by global trade. Hear from the farmers, manufactures, tech companies, and others that are already feeling the impact.

Tariffs on steel, aluminum, and Chinese imports, as well as the potential for additional tariffs on autos and auto parts, have pushed us into a global trade war. China and the EU have retaliated—or announced plans to retaliate—with billions of dollars in tariffs on American-made products.

Millions of U.S. jobs depend on America’s ability to trade with other countries. Half of all U.S. manufacturing jobs depend on exports, and one in three acres of American farmland is planted for international sales. But recent and proposed trade actions by the Trump administration threaten as many as 2.6 million American jobs and will stymie our economic progress. 

Tariffs on imported goods are hitting American consumers and businesses—including manufacturers, farmers, ranchers, and technology companies—with higher costs on commonly used products and materials.

Simply put, tariffs are a tax on American consumers and businesses. Tariffs are the wrong approach to address unfair trade practices.
