WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) released the following statement regarding today’s announcement from the President on steel and aluminum tariffs:

"Recent tax cuts and continued regulatory relief are driving positive economic growth and bolstering consumer confidence. Congress and the White House should be doing everything in their power to build off of tax reform and keep this momentum going. While I’m supportive of punishing bad actors who abuse trade policy, our response needs to be methodical and surgical so we aren’t inadvertently punishing America’s allies and sparking retaliatory tariffs that could slow down our economic momentum."
