After hosting farmers, manufacturers, and other business owners in Milwaukee last week, Senator Ron Johnson is turning up the pressure on the Trump administration to bring certainty to the ongoing trade war. New tariffs from Europe, Canada, Mexico, and China are taking thousands of dollars out of business owners’ pockets daily, whether it is a soybean producer or an auto parts manufacturer. Senator Johnson says the longer it goes on, the more difficult it will get for industries like agriculture.
With stemming the immediate damage a focus, Senator Johnson hopes the Trump Administration uses their leverage to conclude the trade deals to bring certainty and enthusiasm back to the economy. According to Senator Johnson, Wisconsin currently has a trade surplus with Canada and Mexico, especially when it comes to its dairy products.
