McConnell Responds to President's Tariff Policy
By WestKyStar Staff
WASHINGTON DC - U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) responded to Thursday’s announcement from the president on steel and aluminum tariffs:

“Members of the Senate, myself included, are concerned about the scope of the proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum and their impact on American citizens and businesses, including many I represent in Kentucky. I am pleased to see that the administration today made accommodations for some of our trading partners and allies. However, important questions remain about whether ultimately these tariffs will be sufficiently targeted, tailored and limited.

I look forward to working with the administration to make sure that our trade policy focuses on curbing abusive behavior and protecting our interests here at home without harming America’s economic security.”
