AWFUL. US Chamber of Commerce Threatens to Sue Trump over Mexican Tariffs – Says It Won’t Help Border Crisis and Mexico Is Suffering Too (VIDEO)
Neil Bradley is the executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer with the US Chamber of Commerce.
On Friday Bradley joined Varney and Co. to attack President Trump over his proposed tariffs on Mexican goods.
It was not a good interview. Most everything Neil shared was totally inaccurate.
Neil Bradley: We’re urging the administration not to proceed with these tariffs. I hope they are delayed but honestly I hope they are taken off the table… I think the difference here with Mexico is we have a migration problem and it’s a crisis on the southern border. But imposing tariffs on consumers and businesses won’t do anything to affect that migration problem… It’s a complicated problem but it involves doing things with Mexico. Mexico is also suffering over this crisis at the border. These are individuals that are crossing through their country and moving up through it. We need to work in partnership with them both to secure our southern border and their southern border. And ultimately we have to take action to address problems in the northern triangle. The root cause of this is the violence and economic despair in those countries. We should be working with Mexico and other allies to address that problem not weakening our economy and the Mexican economy.
The root cause is the open border Democrats and weak Republican lawmakers.
After Trump announced tariffs Mexico freezed the bank accounts of human traffickers and sent 6,000 soldiers to the border with Guatemala.
The threat of tariffs worked.
The Chamber of Commerce is no friend to American families.
