AIER President Edward Stringham again joins Fox News’ Cavuto: Coast to Coast panel to discuss doubt about the future of Donald Trump’s trade tariffs among many other topics. Stringham asserts that tariffs are taxes on American businesses, disrupt supply chains, and impede the potential of the U.S. economy. He emphasizes the widespread censure by economists toward the tariffs and their optimism about any potential removal.
