"I crossed party lines and supported President Donald J. Trump's position on tariffs for Chinese steel and aluminum. For too long China was allowed to abuse trade deals, and engage in illegal steel dumping and other practices to the detriment of communities like Youngstown and Akron, Ohio.
"I’ve been fighting these issues since I first came to Congress, regardless of which party was in charge. Now, like so many other times since his Inauguration, President Trump went back on a campaign promise and against the working people of Northeast Ohio. Tariffs should be imposed on China unless and until they agree to reform their trading relationship with the United States, allow for a level-playing field, and stop stealing our technology.
"Donald Trump was eyeball to eyeball with China to level the playing field for American workers — and he blinked."
