May 17, 2019

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding reports of an agreement with Canada and Mexico to end U.S.-imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports:

“I have always said that we should be focusing our efforts on China, not on Mexico, Canada or Europe. It is a good thing these tariffs will be lifted, and we should urge our allies to join us in preventing China’s predatory practices. There are still many other issues that are outstanding before Democrats would support the USMCA.”
