End the Reckless Trade War

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. CISNEROS. Mr. Speaker, the President continues to talk about how the tariffs are working, how China is struggling, their economy is hurting, and they are ready to make a deal.

The reality is American businesses are suffering. The trade tariffs have had a negative impact on small businesses and consumers in my district.

I recently met with SEMA, the Specialty Equipment Market Association, an organization that represents nearly 8,000 businesses across the country, 1 million workers, and revenue of over $45 billion. Seventy- five of those businesses are in California's 39th Congressional District.

The ongoing uncertainty and threats of new tariffs create an atmosphere of unpredictability and uncertainty that can inhibit growth and innovation.

Mr. Speaker, while businesses want to address unfair trade practices, they disagree with the administration's reckless approach to impose tariffs. These tariffs have increased prices for American consumers, hurt businesses, and harmed American families, not foreign countries.

China is no closer to making a deal than it was 6 months ago.

Let's end this reckless trade war for the sake of our consumers, our businesses in California's 39th, and across the country.
