A strong majority supports free trade and rejects Trump’s anti-market trade wars and tariffs.
Mark Murray reports that
Amid President Donald Trump’s trade war with China, nearly two-thirds of Americans say they support free trade with foreign countries, according to the latest national poll from NBC News and the Wall Street Journal.
That represents a new high in the NBC/WSJ survey on this question, and it’s a 7-point increase from the last time it was asked in 2017.
Most people know that tariffs are taxes, that trade wars bring economic hardship to consumers, and that it’s not foreigners but Americans who are paying for this federal administration’s economic ignorance.
