IPI Experts Unleash on Twitter In Response to Mexico Tariffs

Institute for Policy Innovation

As President Trump moves forward with a plan to slap Mexico with tariffs, IPI experts pulled no punches in speaking out regarding the harm imposed on U.S. consumers by such a move.

On Twitter, Dr. Merrill Matthews asked why the president is choosing to punish Americans over his concern for the flood of illegal immigrants.

Additionally, IPI president Tom Giovanetti chimed in regarding the Constitutionality of weaponizing tariffs.

Matthews also asserted that President Trump’s habit of imposing tariffs has undermined the otherwise booming economy as reflected in the stock market.

IPI believes the United States should aggressively pursue trade liberalization, which includes a willingness to lower our own trade barriers even as we press other countries to lower theirs. American consumers bear the brunt of the protectionist impulse through higher prices on consumer goods, and American workers are best served when liberalized trade policies facilitate the export of American products throughout the world.
