AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on Thursday argued there is no danger President Trump's new tariffs will start a trade war, siding with the president on tariffs that have angered the GOP.
"Tariffs won't start a trade war, there's 435 of them in place today to fight trade cheaters. People may not like how Pres Trump rolled these out, but I applaud him for trying," the union boss tweeted.
Trumka, the leader of the nation's largest trade union association, has become a staunch advocate for Trump's new tariffs, which Republicans have criticized.
