Alexander Statement on President Trump’s Meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker

Posted on July 25, 2018

WASHINGTON, July 25, 2018 — United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) released this statement following President Trump’s meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker:

“The goal the President stated today of ‘zero tariffs, zero non-tariff barriers, and zero subsidies’ is exactly the right goal for Tennessee workers and a welcome movement away from piling tariffs on top of tariffs that threaten to destroy jobs and lower family incomes. Taking such steps in the direction of reciprocity—insisting that other countries do for us what we do for them—rather than a trade war, is the right thing to do for the American worker.”
