Neal Statement on President Trump’s Steel and Aluminum Tariffs Announcement

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard E. Neal (D-MA) issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s elimination of tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada and Mexico:
“The steel and aluminum tariffs that the President is lifting for Canada and Mexico did little to address the global steel and aluminum overcapacity problem. In fact, based on developments of the past week, we seem farther than we have ever been from constructively addressing longstanding, serious trade problems with China, including the massive overcapacity that China has built up in steel and aluminum production. 

“The tariffs also appear to have needlessly complicated the NAFTA renegotiation dynamics over the past year. When it comes to the new agreement, House Democrats continue to have a number of substantial concerns related to labor, environment, enforcement, and access to affordable medicines provisions. Those issues still need to be remedied.”
